Governor Peter Beckingham (L) and Achsah Wildish, together with Anthony Wilkinson, the Head of British West Indies Collegiate and the Head Prefect of BWIC

Governor Peter Beckingham visited British West Indies Collegiate this week, and met Achsah Wildish, who on 21 January was told that she had been named “Top Student of the World” by the University of Cambridge International Examination Board for her AS performance in mathematics. The governor issued the following statement at a special ceremony at the school on 21 January:

“Big congratulations to Achsah on this fantastic honour. To be named as the Top Student in the World by a University of Cambridge Examination Board is a huge achievement.

“I was delighted to have the opportunity to meet Achsah this week, and I would like to repeat publicly my best wishes to her for a successful transition to a British university. This Award should stand you in great stead!

“Congratulations also to Achsah’s teachers, especially of mathematics. You have brought great credit to British West Indies Collegiate, and Turks and Caicos Islands, with this success.

“Finally, my thanks and best wishes to all the pupils and staff of Collegiate. I enjoyed my visit immensely, and got the sense, albeit from a just a short time, that the school is happy and productive place, with a great mix of cheerful and motivated pupils. It was a pleasure to meet some of you, and I look forward to hearing of many other successes over the next year.”
