We bid farewel to another group of students in June 2017.
At the Awards Ceremony held in October this year, 9G was once again named "Homeroom of the Year." They received the Cayman National Bank Trophy and a treat at the Cayman Brac Beach resort valued at $500 and also sponsored by Cayman National Bank.
The Homeroom of the year award seeks to collectively reward the efforts of groups of students. A points system is used to award points to a homeroom based on the collective efforts of all students in the homeroom. This includes the following areas:
Academic Average, Effort, Conduct, Attendance, Punctuality, Merits, Class Service Projects, Conduct and Participation in Assemblies. Points are deducted for behaviour incidents.
The Homeroom with the highest number of points is named Homeroom of the Year. Well done to 9G.

The Food and Nutrition students held a Healthy Breakfast day on March 18,
2015. The event was used to promote the importance of having a healthy
breakfast in the mornings. It also
served the purpose of providing an opportunity for the students to prepare healthy
breakfast meals demonstrating skills learned in the Food and Nutrition
programme. It was a successful project and all students and staff at the school
were provided with healthy and sumptuous breakfast that morning. Funds used towards the project were raised
through activities by the students. The
