Naparima Girls’ Captures 37 Scholarships!

“Success isn’t a secret; it’s all around us,”

– Former Deputy Head Girl, Danielle Seunarine, Open Scholarship Winner in


At this morning’s assembly, students and staff were graced by the presence of

the majority of the thirty-seven scholarship recipients. To begin the events,

former head girl, Katelyn Dwarpaul (Additional Scholarship recipient in Natural

Sciences), recited a short prayer and this was followed by approximately thirty

unique, appreciative speeches. As each awardee anxiously stood at the front of

the assembly, their moment to shine was finally here – the opportunity to deliver

their long awaited Scholarship Acceptance Speeches which many had mentioned

that they wrote since Form Five. While the experience was described as being a

dream come true for many, it was without a doubt that each student owed a

great amount of their success to God for guiding them through the long, stressful

nights and final examinations.

The recipients also made special mention to their teachers, both present and

past, who would have alongside worked tirelessly with them. One recipient,

Illisha Manerikar described our teachers as “mothers, cheerleaders and

motivators.” Therefore, it was no surprise that they were all praised for their

commitment, encouragement and patience. The student body was also given

words of advice as to how they themselves can attain a scholarship. As Teshanna

Mohammed (Open Scholarship in Mathematics) would have said, “You need to

work, not compete. Help each other and you can all achieve success.”

We at Naparima Girls’ High School continue to wish all our scholarship winners

and past students best of luck in their future endeavors. We eagerly anticipate to

hearing great achievements from you!
