Their fellows from around the Caribbean have come here for the annual meetings of the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) and award ceremony for their own efforts.
Belize’s top candidate, Nisa Sanchez, formerly of E.P. Yorke High School, garnered 16 passes in the May/June examinations, but the region’s most outstanding candidate is Antigua and Barbuda’s Brandon Judnarine, who managed 21 grade one passes and a grade 2 in Technical Drawing.
The group met yesterday with Belize’s Minister of Education and Youth Patrick Faber and Prime Minister Dean Barrow.
Minister Faber, whom in his thirties is not much older than many of the awardees, spoke to them about the importance of their achievements and those who helped get them to this point, while the Prime Minister encouraged them to see more of Belize and foster regional cooperation.
The official ceremony and launch of the CXC Governance Meeting is tonight.
