Jamaican, Westmorelite and Manning's School student Miltonia Thompson, daughter of Mr. Milton Thompson & Mrs. Margarett Ricketts-Thompson was recognized for her distinguished astonishing performance in the CSEC examinations.

Miltonia was awarded 13 CSEC distinctions! I mean all in Grade 1's.

These are Mathematics, English Language, English Literature, Spanish, Chemistry, Physics, Information Technology, Principles of Business, OA, EDPM, Human and Social Biology and Social Studies; she did EDPM and HSB (Human and Social Biology) in 4th form.

For her efforts, she was awarded the Top Female 2011 CSEC student in Jamaica!

Of significant note too was the fact that her performance in the English Literature and Social Studies was the best in the entire Caribbean!

The event was the Annual Homecoming Independence Reunion & Awards Dinner at the Manning's School auditorium on Saturday, August 11, 2012.

The event was hosted by the Manning's Past Student Association, Western Chapter, ably led by president Roger Walcott.

For her efforts, Miltonia was, not surprising, elected Head Girl for the 2012-2013 academic year. Lij Tau Thompson, brother of Miltonia was awarded Head Boy for the same period.

Lij Tau Thompson also achieved distinguished performances in the exams as well. He too had all distinctions! Ten (10) of them: Mathematics, English A, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Spanish, Information Technology, Principles of Accounts, Principles of Business and Add. Maths in GCE! Yes, all in Grade 1!

Both will commence their duties this in September.

I was privileged to sit a the very same table with a proud and esteemed family, The Thompsons. Although overjoyed, I could not help recognizing and admiring their humility. They were simply appreciative and grateful.

An a lighter note, I also noticed that Miltonia was a very light eater, that probably would explain why she is so petite, but certainly not how she acquires the nutrition and energy to do so well. It's probably genes, Am I right Mr. & Mrs. Thompson? lol?

By the way, and like yours truly, Mrs. Margarett Ricketts-Thompson is also a proud past student of The Manning's School.

Other stalwarts, supporters, distinguished students and staff members were also recognized. Dr. Rovan (Douba) Locke was the main speaker.

Entertainment was provided by the amazingly talented Manning's Chorale.

So what do you think of these children performances? CLICK HERE To send congratulations to Miltonia, Lij Tau and indeed the entire Thompson family.

Congratulations to both Thompsons.

However, to the BEST of my knowledge the father of Miltonia and the father of Lij-Tau have not entered into an greement for joint custody by any one of them for any of these children.


Please fix other errors in the article, - gramatical, etc.
