 rainbowAfter sadness, comes healing..

It is with great joy, that we report that our dear colleague, friend and teacher, Mrs Gillian Herbert has been released from the hospital and is recovering quietly at this time. While flowers, gifts, cards and visits are not prohibited, we do encourage well wishers to allow her and her family the time and space that they need and deserve at this difficult time. Our grateful thanks go out to the doctors and staff at the Mount Hope Hospital who supported her, and as always, we pray to our Lord God for their speedy recovery.

Aspiring lawyer, Raquel LeBlanc (see photo left) was blessed to be awarded the 2016 President's Medal in the area of Business Studies, Creative and Performing Arts, General Studies, Language Arts, Humanities and Technical Studies. In addition to this graduating class' outstanding achievement in all receiving full advanced level certificates, they were also awarded a total of 28 national scholarships based on the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination results this year.

Unsurprisingly given our that teaching and learning in our school community is grounded in our faith and tradition, Raquel and all our successful alumni noted the importance of prayer, of strong family support, a personal committment to excellence, thier individual determined efforts and the invaluable professionalism of our teaching faculty.

We congratulate them, their friends and families and we are confident that the skills, knowledge and values they have learned here will hold them in good stead, as they go on to what we are certain, will be great success.

The keys to the city

old_school
From the arrival on 29th January, 1836, of 5 sisters; Pauline Lefevre, Sr. Onesime, Superioress; Adelaide Delorme, Sr. Scholastique; Antoinette Beurier, Sr. Pelagie; Marguerite de Wint, Sr. Louis de Gonzague; Marie Josephine Remi, Sr. Theotiste and Civilise Jacqumel, Sr. Gabrielle; the Congregation of Sisters of Saint Joseph of Cluny has made an immeasurable contribution to the educational community and to society in general in Trinidad & Tobago.
Since Blessed Anne Marie founded her Congregation in Cluny, Burgundy under the patronage of St. Joseph in 1807, the primary aim of the order has been to care for orphans and educate children. Grounded in their tradition and faith, they have offered thousands of girls in this country, an education which enriched character and inspired a lifelong passion for learning and personal excellence, while providing them with the skills, knowledge and values necessary to become confident, passionate young women, eager to play leading roles in shaping our country and the world.

FotorCreatedOn Thursday, 22nd September, 2016, in recognition of their efforts, the Mayor of Port of Spain, Keron Valentine recognised this, and bestowed Sister Annetta Alexander, Provincial Superior of the order with the Keys of the City of Port of Spain.  (Click below to read the full text of his address.)

The ceremony  which was held in the school’s chapel, was attended by Minister of Education, the Honourable Anthony Garcia, and Fathe Clyde Harvey represented the Archbishop of Trinidad and Tobago, Father Joseph Everard Harris. Also in attendance were our immediate past principals, Mrs. Elizabeth Crouch and Mrs. Jennifer Annandsingh.
