SCHOLARSHIPS 2017

Convent Pride

It is probably not a coincidence, that just as the St. Joseph's Convent Port of Spain Past Pupils Association is about to embark on its first Convent Pride month, we have been blessed once again with brilliant results from our scholars. In addition to the 100% pass rate at both the CSEC and CAPE levels, the Minister of Education, The Honourable Anthony Garcia announced during a press conference on Friday 27th October, 2017 that we had tied with Naparima Girls' High School in San Fernando for the most scholarships earned by a school this year.

Our principal and staff, academic and auxiliary, and our entire school community are happy and very proud of the 38 young learners who have earned national scholarships based on their 2017 Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examinations (CAPE) results. As the Principal of St Joseph's Convent, Port of Spain, Mrs Anna Pounder congratulated our recent graduates on their accomplishments and noted that it was largely due to their hard work and discipline. Mrs Pounder also emphasised the dedication and commitment of our staff and their contribution to helping all our learners achieve to their maximum potential.
