Each President Medal winner since 2010 identified, encouraged and supported a younger student one year behind who had the potential to repeat the outstanding feat of being the top student at the CAPE exams the following year. The result: an unbroken chain of five consecutive President Medals embellishing our proud record of ten President Medals in the last fifteen years, and fourteen medals overall!
In addition, of our sixty five students siting CAPE in Upper Six, twenty five attained government scholarships, a one in three ratio just as we attained last year…Hard work always pays off!

Ravi Ramrattan, the Presentation College’s 2002 President’s Gold Medal winner, was killed in the terrorist action in Kenya this Saturday.
A proud graduate of Pres Chaguanas, he copped an Open Scholarship, studied at Oxford and Cambridge Universities, and was presently pursuing his PhD. He was currently working for the United Nations on an economics project in Kenya.
Ravi was a keen all round student, playing cricket for the college while assiduously pursuing his studies.The school community mourns his passing, made especially poignant as he had always kept in touch with his school and his teachers.
A minute of silence was respectfully observed in our morning assembly, and the school flag currently flies at half mast. Teachers and his then classmates visited his parents today to express condolences.
In the midst of our celebrations of the college’s recent academic success, this sad news acts as a sobering reminder of the fickleness of life, and lends credence to the saying “the good die young”…
Again, Presentation College expresses its deepest condolences to his parents, family, friends and classmates and co-workers on their, and our, terrible loss…
Rest in Peace Ravi…
Thanks to the combined efforts of the Parents Teachers Advisory Body, our six hundred hungry students, our Alumni Association, cooperate Chaguanas and you the parents and well wishers of Pres Chaguanas, over 1,600 Bar-B-Que tickets were sold for last Friday’s Mother of All Bar b Ques (MOAB) event.
From 4 a.m. Friday morning, parents and past students fired up the pits and began non stop production. By 10 a.m. our students joined the no-wait line, and batched deliveries to companies began as well. Judging from the comments of the boys and parents, the BBQ was supremely well prepared and tasted fantastic!So, thanks again to the PTAB, and all others that made our BBQ the sell out, great tasting success that it was…we can’t wait for the same time next year and MOAB2!
Congratulations to these deserving students who have done themselves, their parents and our college very proud!
Twenty seven scholarships, our best results ever, tops our total last year by five…and of course, Abhinav collects his Open Scholarship in Math, together with the President’s Medal…
We want our 27 scholarship winners to attend a special assembly on Monday 23rd September at 11 am at school, where they will be presented to the school population.
Proud To Be Pres!

In a special assembly held Friday last, Abhinav thanked his teachers his onlooking parents, and the whole school community for their support over the years, highlighting time management and personal sacrifice as the pivots for his success. He is currently enrolled in Mount Hope Medical school, and plans to complete his medical degree there.
