Jackson Mactaggart is an Honor Roll student at the Lyford Cay International School and the #1 ranked tennis player in the country for
the Boys U12, winning trophies in the national tournaments. He has represented The Bahamas in tennis on the international stage. Jackson also plays soccer and golf competitively. He plays the steel pans for the Lyford Cay International School Steel Orchestra and is also a parishioner and CCD student at Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Church.
Sarai Clarke is Head Girl at the T. G. Glover Primary School and has always been on both the Principal and Honor Roll lists. Sarai is one of our top tennis juniors in the U10 winning many tennis trophies. Sarai is also active in soccer and track & field, where she has won numerous awards also. She is a member of the Bells and Choir Chimes Ensemble, School Choir, and Spelling Bee and Discovery Club at her school. Sarai passed the Royal School of Music Exam Grade 1, a member of the Peer Meditation group and a parishioner at Grants Town Seventh Day Adventist Church. Sarai was also recently selected as “Student Of The Week”.
These two juniors amaze us with their discipline, attitude, and excellent spirit. They go beyond the regular and set new boundaries to scale new heights. Exhibiting a willingness to serve and to share, Sarai and Jackson have volunteered their time to assist the BLTA with free tennis clinics for the kids of the Ranfurly Home.
Jackson Mactaggart and Sarai Clarke are very worthy candidates for the 2020 Primary School “Student of The Year”. As nominees of this prestigious award we wish them both well on their journey and know this is just the beginning of many future opportunities and achievements.
