Back to school under new protocols
It was fairly smooth sailing at Harrison College and The St Michael School today as both institutions hosted students undertaking their Caribbean Advance Proficiency Examination Internal Assessments.
These assessments are designed to test the knowledge, skills and attitudes students have in particular subjects and are linked to the overall syllabus.
Principal of The St Michael School, Dr Yvette Mayers, said they were only expecting 14 today – mainly for technical drawing – who would be spread across two rooms so the students would have adequate space as per the COVID-19 protocols.
For the first time this year, students of The St Michael School will be sitting their technical drawing examinations at a computer desk as the school will be utilising the AutoCAD design and drafting software.
With sanitising spray bottle and digital thermometer in hand, Principal of Harrison College Juanita Wade, said it was going well and she only had to remind a few students not to stay too close to each other.
“It’s been a fairly smooth day, the only challenge was students coming earlier than expected so we had to place them somewhere while they waited.
“We have 42 students doing the Pure Mathematics assessment before the examinations on July 14. They are being housed between the hall and a few surrounding classrooms,” she said.
Harrison College staff were also on hand to ensure the health protocols were being kept and the school also featured new hand washing stations, emergency masks, digital thermometers and sanitising spray. (CA)
