Reported by Dr. Kumar Mahavir.

A private Hindu College/High School continues to excel academically in Guyana (and perhaps the Caribbean), surpassed only by the long-established (1844), State-funded Queen’s College.

In the recent CSEC [equivalent to London GCE and Cambridge O’ Level] examinations, Saraswati Vidya Niketan (SVN) ranked second in the country in attaining more than 10 Grade Ones.

Queen’s College                     45

SVN                                        24

Bishop’s High                         14

Stanislaus                                11


The school also ranked second in the country in achieving more than 11 Grade Ones.

Bishop’s High                         0

Stanislaus                                1

Eighty-three (83) students wrote the exams, consisting of 36 boys and 47 females. In most schools in other parts of the world, boys are generally performing badly when compared to girls.

SVN was established in 2002 by Swami Aksharananda (Dr. Odai Pal Singh, Ph.D., University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA) who is the founder and principal. The school has a population of about 800 students.

Swami is in the process of building a dormitory for teachers, a kindergarten and a primary school, and in the next three years, a Hindu university.

Donations will be appreciated.
