The business sector in Berbice has responded with excitement at the performance of 16-year-old Shalita Appadu of New Amsterdam Secondary School who along with Anu Dev of Queens College obtained 15 grade ones at this year’s Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examinations.
As the news broke about Appadu’s outstanding performance, many prominent Berbicians could not contain their joy in seeing Region Six again in the headlines in the field of education.
Berbice Chamber of Commerce and Development Association President Rohan Marray extended the chamber’s warmest congratulations to the Auchlyne Estate resident and the other top performers in the region, noting that their hard work has paid off.
He noted that the chamber is very pleased at the news and achievements of the young lady and other top performers as their performance has again placed the ancient country prominently on the map. Marray said the chamber would not let the achievement of Appadu go unnoticed and will honour the 16-year-old for her dedication and commitment to learning.
