The St. John’s Catholic Primary School (SJCPS) has announced the appointment

of a new Principal, Verlyn Amina Anika Richards.

The announcement from the Board said Richards, who has been a teacher at SJCPS

for the past 22 years, is a trained teacher holding a Bachelor’s degree in

Mathematics Education from the University of the West Indies.


The Board said it believes that Richards’ years of teaching experience and

management are qualities that will be effective in advancing the holistic

development of our students at St. John’s Catholic Primary.  For over twenty-two

years Richards has molded the young minds of students in all grades at SJCPS and

has worked with her colleagues in producing scores of top students in the Grade

Six National Assessment.


Richards, a devout Catholic, believes in the words of Pope John Paul II who stated

that the Catholic school is characterized by its unique reference to the human

person, since every person, with their material and spiritual needs, is at the centre

of Jesus’ teaching; therefore, the promotion of the human person forms the

objective of a Catholic school.

The Board thanks former principal, Sister Marie Voltaire, for her impeccable years

of service to St. John’s Catholic Primary School and wishes her the very best in her

continued formation as a Missionary Sisters – Servants of the Holy Spirit


The Board welcomes Richards to the leadership role of the SJCPS and it pledges to

continue to work with the administration to foster greater cooperation between

parents, pupils, administration, and teachers.  “We look forward to the continued

support of our parents and benefactors as we holistically develop the students

entrusted to us,” it stated.
