(CHARLESTOWN, NEVIS)- Teachers at the various Primary Schools on Nevis are working diligently to preparing their students who are about to tackle the ‘Test of Standards’ examination in June 2015. This would involve students from Grade 3 to Grade 6.
Speaking with the Headmistress, of the Maude Crosse Preparatory School, Ms. Cherry-Anne Walwyn about the preparations for the students, she noted that the preparations for important exams such as the ‘Test of Standards’ are always challenging. She stated that students and teachers have to stay extra hours after school to ensure that the syllabuses are completed and that the pupils are prepared to sit the critical exams.
“We at the Maude Crosse Preparatory School realize that a good education is a sure path to great opportunities and that is why it is important for parents to invest the required time in helping their children study for the exams, as teachers cannot do it alone”, she stated.
Over 3,000 students in the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis will take the exams in June 2015 and Ms. Walywn is encouraging and challenging all students to stay focused and to do their utmost best.
“Parents, no sacrifice is too great for our kids, you may have to stay up later, take away some leisure time or even put aside some of your own activities but at the end of it all, our children’s education will determine their future”, she said.
Two former students of the Maude Crosse Preparatory School, Lekiah Lescot and Shante’ Anslyn were the leading students on the island of Nevis for last year’s examinations. “The torch has been lit so keep it burning”, she concluded.
