Registrar of the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) Glenroy Cumberbatch will have a face-to-face session with parents and guardians at The St Michael School later this week.

It will be held this Thursday, November 16, in the school’s hall at Martindales Road, St Michael, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

During the meeting, which was organised by the school’s Parent-Teacher Association (PTA), Cumberbatch will speak to The Importance of Parents and Guardians in the Examination Process.  He will also address the CXC’s role in building productive citizens, as well as the examinations and qualifications offered by that institution.

 The session is open to all interested parents and guardians across Barbados and participants will get the opportunity to ask questions and learn how they can assist their children in navigating examinations and School Based Assessments (SBAs) successfully. (BGIS)
