Pass rates improve

ST THOMAS High School has finally shrugged off its negative reputation of being an under-performing school and its prefect induction ceremony yesterday took time to make special mention of high achieving teachers.

Principal Brother Sahai said the school was proud of its academic achievement last year and the special awards to teachers was meant to serve as an incentive for continued improvement in the years to come.

He said examination results were improving.

"We have started to acknowledge the efforts that are put in by teachers and our pass rates previously were below 50 per cent," he said.

"Last year, we achieved 50 per cent pass rate in the Fiji Seventh Form Examination and 57 per cent in the Fiji School Leaving Certificate Examination."

He said it was important for teachers to be acknowledged because they too needed motivation to continue with the work they were doing.

"We are mentally preparing ourselves to have a 100 per cent pass rate because we would want all the students to do their best."

The school marked another important part of the academic calendar yesterday as 22 prefects were inducted.

The school has a roll of 500.
