Message from the Principal


My Dear Aquinas College Family and Friends,

The 2018-2019 school year is quickly coming to an end. It has been a fantastic year filled with events that have brought us closer together. Thank you for your support, prayers and words of e encouragement. We could not offer such a rich education to our students without the effort and support that you give. Our partnership is a testament that “It Takes a Village”. Our school community remains resilient in our continuing quest towards excellence.

As we continue our progression with these remaining weeks, you are reminded that May and June are examination months. BGCSE and BJC examinations have commenced. Our school’s end-of-year examinations will begin on Monday, June 3, 2019 and end on Thursday, June 6, 2019. Please encourage your sons and daughters to prepare daily so that they will perform well.

I take this opportunity to extend sincere congratulations to our Class of 2019 on the successful completion of their secondary educational journey. You are scholars, athletes, orators, engineers, counselors, teachers, musicians, mathematicians, explorers, comedians, and politicians. When I think of all that has been instilled in you at this fine institution, I have hope for our future. As you say farewell to your alma mater, I want you to carry the Holy Spirit and everything that you have learned at Aquinas College in your hearts. Your departure will certainly leave a void in our school. It is my hope that your future endeavors will embrace the Eight Expectations of the Profile of The Bahamas Catholic Board of Education Graduate. I am proud of you. May God bless you with abundant Grace and Mercy!

I express heartfelt gratitude to our hard working and caring teachers and staff members who have made a huge difference to our students. Your commitment is outstanding and undoubtedly our students are the beneficiaries. Thank you for providing substantial, engaging and well-rounded experiences for our students. It warms my heart that you share the same knowledge that education is about joy, wonder, and fostering curiosity, along with the development of social skills, which are some of the main components that our students need to be successful. For these, and a million other things, I am truly grateful.

In closing, I congratulate all the students of Aquinas College for being a part of the ACES family. I wish you all a very happy, safe and enjoyable summer. Please be sure to take time as family to talk, play, read and pray together.

I look forward to seeing you all in September. To those of you who are leaving us for new places, I wish you all the best and you will continue to be in my prayers.

In Christ’s Love and Peace,

Mrs. Shona M. Knowles – Prinicpal
