  2. There is nothing positive about mediocre education. And nothing wrong about asking if education is, in effect, mediocre. Competition on your own ground is no competition. Beating your own drum and dancing is not classical performance.

  3. What are Valedictorians? How much hard intellectual work does it take to achieve it? Is it at the top, middle or bottom of the educational barrel? How much more intellectual credit does this give Saint Lucia? These are the questions fleeting in the background of my mind & I may not be the only one.

    • My God, with all the positivity in this news you choose to overshadow it with some dumb ass questions smh. This is why we can barely move forward as a country, we fail to show support and congratulate when we see something good happening for our very own. How about a ‘Way go go’....’congratulations on your success ‘ but no you choose to bombard them with unnecessary questions. These youngsters are role models for others kids coming up and I don’t know them but I am proud of them and their achievements. Keep striving for greatness.

      • What's wrong with me asking? Are any of the graduates your relation? What is the zenith of Your educational achievement? Do you know anything on the subject?

    • Keep your negativity to yourself. So many negative things that is currently happening in St.Lucia. A little positive news and that is what you are actually posting. Please encourage our youth don't discourage them.
