In this morning’s (June 12, 2014) edition of the Nation newspaper, Minister of Education Ronald Jones congratulated all of the students who sat the Common Entrance examination but expressed concern about the need for the challenges students face in Mathematics and English to be addressed. It was noted that out of 3,729 students, there were only 22 who gained 100% in Mathematics. This does not discount the efforts of any of the other children, since all children who sat the exam should be commended for reaching this milestone.
The names of those 22 were not mentioned but special congratulations to you all the same.
Also, kudos to the top performers in English, whose names were published:
Rehanna King – Eagle Hall Primary School
Jamilah Best – Hindsbury Primary School
Kacie Corbin – St. Winifred’s School
Jamie-Lynn Taitt-Gibson – Charles F. Broome Memorial School
Aria Kellman – West Terrace Primary School
Yohance Lewis – St. Cyprian’s Boys’ School
Teshara Walton – George Lamming Primary School
Aisha Waterman – St. Gabriel’s School
Leanne Alleyne – Hindsbury Primary School
Shamoya Carty – Wills Primary School
Thelema Grannum – Hillaby Turner’s Hall Primary School
Oluwatomi Oredein – People’s Cathedral Primary School
Sunshine Talma – Wills Primary School
Good job, children. Well done.
