We have now set our sights on becoming a school of excellence over the next five years, and we believe that we will accomplish that also in short order,” he said.“With the dedication of staff, with the commitment of our Board and our parents, with the discipline of students, I think those things can be accomplished,” the Principal added.Mr. Bellinfantie pointed out that, included in the first set of students to graduate from that institution in 2007, there was one student, Richard Weddeburn, who received the highest mark in Visual Arts in the island.He noted that the 2008/2009 batch of graduates would be its first set of students to have completed five full years at the school.Meanwhile, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the CHASE Fund, Billy Heaven, said the decision by the Fund to equip the school with the music laboratory was no mistake, as one of its goals is to equip as many schools as possible with a music studio.“This project is merely one of about one thousand projects that we have funded at the CHASE Fund for about $4 billion in our five years of existence ..but this project is one of our flagship projects, it’s the joy and pride of the CHASE Fund,” he said.Mr. Heaven highlighted the willingness of the CHASE Fund to finance any viable project that falls within its ambit, noting that it is getting more competitive for projects to access the funds.Outlining the level of competitiveness for the funds, he said that to every dollar that the CHASE Fund receives today, there are some 15 projects waiting for that one dollar.
