‘Be calm and do your best’
TO THE MORE THAN 3 000 children who will be sitting today’s Barbados Secondary Schools’ Entrance Examination, one of their colleagues has some advice: be calm and collected and just do your best.
That was the message from Rakobe Carrington, a pupil of Gordon Greenidge Primary School in St Peter, who was frolicking at Folkestone Marine Park, St James, yesterday in a scene no doubt repeated at various picnic spots across the island.
He told the DAILY NATION: “I am ready and feel very confident for the examination; I expect to do very well. I also would like to attend the Coleridge and Parry School this coming September. To all those who are nervous, just keep calm and do your best.”
The children spent the day doing various activities such as playing football, swimming or just relaxing before today’s big test, also referred to as the 11-Plus or Common Entrance Exam.
