Instead of just keeping the spotlight on the school, we decided to share the spotlight with other students. This week we decided to look at the school's top performer in the C.X.C. examinations, Jemelia Wyles. The interview was quiet interesting and was conducted by a fellow student, Mr. Andre Welsh. Please read and enjoy and bask in the glory of one of Camperdown's fine productions.
