Moreover, from our council’s inception, it has vowed to be a collaborative organization striving for a consensus of thought and to consider problems of mutual interest to its member affiliates. Bahamas Primary School Student of the Year program, which is the premier National Awards Recognition program for 6th grade students in The Bahamas was the brainchild of Charter Council President Ricardo Deveaux and had the full endorsement of the Council.
