ANGLICAN SCHOOLS SUNDAY


Let us celebrate all of the collective achievements great and small, among our four schools which include St. John's College and St. Anne's School in New Providence, bishop Michael Eldon School in Grand Bahama and St. Andrew's Anglican School in Exuma.

We are proud to recognize our students who performed well, not just in the classroom but on the sports field, on the stage and in the community as well. It is these achievements that make our Anglican Schools so special. Some highlights of the past year include:

The recognition of two National Merit Winners: Lesley Rolle and Nathan Cooper both from Bishop Michael Eldon School who respectively received the National Merit Scholarship valued at $80K each.

Our primary Students of the were Year Caden Smith (St. Anne's School) - 2nd runner up, Danielle Gibson (St. Andrew's Anglican School), Samuel Hanna (St. John's College) and Clinique Robinson (Bishope Michael Eldon School).
