Two rising stars of Devonshire Castle

The rustic village of Devonshire Castle on the Essequibo Coast in Region Two is one of the less prominent hamlets in Guyana. Not too long ago it gained unwelcome publicity due to allegations of criminal activities perpetrated on vulnerable women there.

Today however, the village is basking in the success of two of its youngest residents, Angelita Chattergoon and Tyhecia Moore who turned in outstanding performances at this year’s National Grade Six Assessment examination. Angelita’s 545 marks and Tyhecia’s 520 won them spots at top secondary schools in the country. They also found themselves well placed among the region’s top ten finishers.
