THE PRINCIPAL of Ghana International School, Mrs Diana Nyatepe-Coo today lauded the efforts of the Class of 2012 for their impressive performance in the GCE A-level examinations.

Mrs Nyatepe-Coo, in a letter to parents, students and staff of GIS said last year?s A-level students made the school proud. She reported that 21 out of 75 A-level students achieved at least one A* or A grade. Five students accomplished exceptional performances. The five were; the school?s former head girl, Yetunde Meroe who achieved three A*s; student Nafisa Shamim who achieved 2 A*s and an A; Karan Thakker who was awarded 2 A*s and 1 A; and Kwesi Bedu-Addo and Kent Njeru both gained one A* and 2 A. In all, 83 per cent of A-level students achieved one or more C to A* grades.

She also commended the exceptional achievements of the former Form 5 students who sat the International General Certificate in Secondary Education (IGCSE) in May and June. Eighty-seven students sat the examinations, with a phenomenal 33 students awarded at least 6 A* and A grades. Three of last year?s IGCSE students received A* grades in all nine of the subjects they sat ? an exceptional achievement! In addition, more than half the total number of students who sat the examinations, walked away with at least one A* grade.

Commenting further on the results, Mrs Nyatepe-Coo said, ?I would like to extend my congratulations to every student, their parents and our teachers who have worked hard over the years to ensure results such as these. At Ghana International School, we pride ourselves in attaining excellence and these results show why we remain Ghana?s leading international school.

?I encourage all our students to continue to reach for higher heights in order to realise their full potential and become responsible citizens of the world.?
