Happy it’s over
IT IS generally considered that girls perform better academically than boys.
At St Cyprian’s Boys’ School principal Dave Layne is one of the teachers working to reverse that belief.
A quietly confident Layne was at The St Michael School, where his students sat the Barbados Secondary Schools’ Entrance Examination.
“The boys are adequately prepared; I am certain of that beyond any shadow of a doubt. We did the usual – reinforcing the concepts and testing – and we had a mock exam exchange with the People’s Cathedral,” he said.
After the four-hour exam, the boys rushed out to their parents but formed a ring around a smiling Layne, who advised them not to consider the exam as too easy, adding that he fed off their excitement. (CA)
