Dear Parents,




On behalf of Co-Patrons Dr. Davidson Hepburn and Mrs. Jacqueline Bethell; Chairman Vandyke Pratt and Members of the Board of Directors and Awards Committee of The Bahamas Primary School Student of the Year Foundation, I would like to extend a Happy Easter to you, your family and indeed, our Nominee.  


Easter and the Resurrection of Christ are about love, healing, and hope, all needed more than ever by our suffering world.  During the past year, our lives have been transformed and we were forced to make changes and alter our schedules. This has affected the operations of employment and our family lives. For one year, our nominee completed their Grade 5 virtually and in Grade 6, experiencing a hybrid model of learning. We know that our children have been resilient in their learning environments and we commend them for continuing to strive despite the challenges. Each of our nominees have demonstrated that they are over-comers, and we are proud of them. 


Like organisations and communities around the world, the Bahamas Primary School Student of the Year Foundation has been deeply impacted by the COVID 19 coronavirus crisis however we remain committed to ensuring that our efforts will produce an event benefiting the recognition of the BEST and BRIGHTEST primary school students in this country. 

We are excited that our Foundation which is made up of all volunteers, are working on behalf of the 100 nominees soliciting scholarships and prizes to properly recognise your child. As you were advised the 2021 Awards Program will be held on Saturday, June 26th, 2021. 


It is the strongest belief in our God, that our plans will be successful, and our nominees will be recognized for their efforts.  


During this period leading to the Awards Program, my Team will be executing various social media activities and you will be properly advised, so that you may give this information to our nominee. 


Again, The Foundation over the next few weeks will keep you abreast of our plans. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 477-7869 or Chairman Vandyke Pratt at 477-2779.


Sincerely yours,

Ricardo P. Deveaux, DHL
