Food and Nutrition – Grade One
Spanish – Grade One
Information Technology – Grade One
Additional Math – Grade Two
Regina, who hopes to become a medical doctor, will attend Sixth Form at her school – Immaculate Conception High.
“I am truly elated, yet humbled and grateful to God for His favour. I am also very lucky to have the support of my family, teachers and friends who really motivated me to continue when the pressure seemed great,” the young scholar told The Beacon.
Her main sources of motivation are her parents Rudolph and Melvina Wynter.
“My daughter made the Honour Roll at her school every year,” noted Mrs Wynter, who is also a teacher.
Regina, in the meantime, is a member of her school’s prefect council, Red Cross club, and Honour Society. She worships at the Duxes Seventh Day Adventist Church in Point Hill.
