  • GCSE RESULTS DAY 2016 - GIBRALTAR

    Over four hundred students received their GSCE results this morning, with an overall pass rate of 70%. This is a 4% increase on last year, with some particularly impressive English Literature results at Westside, where the number of students achieving A and A* grades more than doubled from the previous year. Grades for Maths remain consistently high and Spanish results, which have fallen over the last few years, increased overall this year. The results are the culmination of a huge amount of hard work and effort from both students and teachers, and Katy Docker was there this morning as the students opened their results.

  • Gibraltar Parliament exchanges between Speaker and Chief Minister

    ‘I do make mistakes because I'm only human.’ With these words the Speaker of Parliament, Adolfo Canepa poured oil on troubled waters after an earlier outburst in the Chamber during which he accused the Chief Minister and the Leader of the Opposition of engaging in a ‘tiresome Punch and Judy’ show. There was palpable tension in the minutes that followed, but eventually peace was restored. Opposition Leader, Daniel Feetham also struck a conciliatory note, saying the cut and thrust of parliamentary politics was important in a democracy, and as far as the Government and the Opposition were concerned it was ‘business as usual.’

    Being Gibraltarian WWII Evacuee Anita Valverde remembers her evacuation years in Jamaica, and performs "Mi Gran Peñon", a very touching lyric written by her late husband whilst away from the Rock. Sadly, the little but very powerful emotion-evoking song seems to have faded away and really deserves to form part of our Collective Community Memory The lyrics are touching, more so when one considers they were written by a passionate Gibraltarian who truly missed his beloved Home having been forcibly removed from the Rock so that it could serve as a full-scale Military base and contribute to Britain's efforts during WWII. The segment has been taken from the Straitvision / GBC production, "Evacuation: Cause and Effect", which probably still ranks as the best Gibraltar documentary to ever have ...

Worries over, the predicted variability of this year’s results have not proved altogether unfounded, with a five percent dip in A* to Cs from last year. But for many, today was the happy culmination of two years’ hard work. Four students at Bayside and eight at Westside achieved all As and A*s, with one girl – Salima Goulamhoussein - achieving nine A stars. Educational reforms in the UK have seen a return to end-of-course exams instead of modular courses, and the promise of stricter marking by exam boards. While Westside School kept to its 2013 pass rate of 68 percent, Bayside School saw a ten percent drop in grades A* to C. The Department of Education is now set to carry out a full analysis of all results, and take all measures necessary to redress any issues identified. The Minister for Education, Gilbert Licudi, has congratulated the many students who’ve been successful in their GCSEs, adding that the Department, the schools and the College will provide guidance and support to those who’ve not done as well as they hoped. The Government praised the alternative year 12 programme, which saw 71 percent of those who retook GCSES achieving a minimum of 5 A* to C grades – saying this shows that with the right support and willingness to work hard, good results are possible.
