Senior schools ministerial sta
House: Rabain upbeat over College numbers
More than 100 pupils from Bermuda’s public high schools will attend Bermuda College, the education minister said today.
Diallo Rabain told MPs that 109 students from the Berkeley Institute and CedarBridge Academy had enrolled.
He added: “This is up from 85 students last year, a difference of 24 students.
“This is in spite of the total number of graduates decreasing this year by six from last year’s total.”
Mr Rabain said that the uptick in public school graduates enrolling at Bermuda College was “due in large part” to the introduction of the College Promise programme.
He said the graduates from both schools “are amazing”.
Mr Rabain added: “They have made their parents, the senior schools and all of us proud.
“I wish every graduate continued success in the future, and I definitely look forward to hearing about their personal achievements and collective contributions to our island as they mature into our future leaders.”
