A CLASS of 12 students attending the St Margaret’s Primary School has done the school proud.
Principal Glendene Hayde said the St John school did well in the Barbados Secondary Schools Entrance Examination as expected since the students worked consistently hard.
She said that based on the performance from Class 3, the teachers were expecting good returns.
“The students worked hard and the teachers as well,” Hayde added.
Class teacher Ron Tull, who worked with the students for two years, said preparation for the exam was no different from what they had always done. He added the students had fun and mixed academics with play.
He said the small size of the class helped but the students were quality pupils from inception.
“There was a lot of interaction and they worked like family, so there was a lot of peer teaching and it became the norm for the stronger students to help the weaker,” Tull said.
Marshawna Greendige scored 95 in both mathematics and English to gain entry into Harrison College, while Naresha Seowdat, who will also attend Harrison College, gained 91 in maths and 90 in English.
The top performing boy, Rasheed Cummins, who scored 85 in Mathematics and 78 in English, will attend Combermere from September. (LK)
