Barrett: ‘We Don’t Worry About the Competition’/EPPS Confident Of Repeat Win

By: Curtis Morton


Coach Adelvin Phillip and his support crew of parents are confident that the Elizabeth Pemberton Primary School will win the B division once again and even upset some of the A division teams in the process as the Inter Primary 2014 edition approaches.

The athletes are in serious training which includes early morning sessions at the School grounds at the Flats in Cole Hill and strenuous sessions later in the day, when the sun is out.

The parents normally prepare breakfast for them at the school and the children are prepared to get ready for school immediately after the early morning sessions.

Top athlete Alexandra Richards noted that she has been receiving a lot of ‘threats’ but stated that she is confident that she will overpower the competition, come the big inter primary championship day on April 2nd


When asked whether or not he had watched the recent inter primary promo by the EPPS school, Headmaster at the Charlestown Primary School, Kevin Barrett, responded rather off handedly: “We don’t watch the completion, we don’t worry about them; we just do what we have to do.’

He indicated that his unit at the Charlestown Primary School is working hard and that the parents are on board as usual and that the athletes have all been included in the school’s lunch program to ensure that they are properly nourished. He is confident that his team will, do well again this year.

Coach Elquemedo Willet was more forthright: ‘ We intend to ensure that there is no joint champions this year. Last year they made changes in order to please people but this year it will be different,’ he said.

He listed several of the athletes who he feels will excel on the day and asked the general public to especially look out for those races in the class A girls and boys and also the class 4 boys.

He believes that the Inter primary meet set for April 2nd will be competitive but that his school will win.
Top athlete at the school, Kurvella Wallace is totally confident of victory. When asked which race she believes will be her most competitive, she stated: ‘The 100.’

When pushed further as to whether or nor not it will be a bit of a photo finish, she confidently stated: ‘I will be in front.’

She also stated: ‘We don’t deal with threats –we deal with promises..’
