So glad it’s over!
Thousands of children and their parents breathed a collective sigh of relief yesterday afternoon.
The much anticipated Common Entrance Examination had come and gone, and the ten and 11-year-olds were ready to wind down and have fun.
Twin brothers Reon and Riad Crichlow seemingly could not wait to feel the reassuring touch of their mother Renee and aunt Evadne, who were waiting for them outside the gates of St Leonard’s Boys’ Secondary School.
Unlike many of their counterparts who came out beaming because the exam was “easy”, the boys appeared a bit disheartened. They found the two papers “hard”. However, mummy assured them that their best was good enough.
