Top P.S.E. scorer is student from Bernice Yorke

Story PictureThe results of the annual Primary School Examination are in and, unlike some years in the past, there is reason to celebrate. Mean scores were up in all four categories, with major improvement in three. We’ll have some analysis in a few minutes but first let’s shine a spotlight on the nation’s top achievers. From out of six thousand three hundred and sixty-six students who sat the exam, Shaneice Lord of Bernice Yorke School attained the highest score: three hundred eighty-eight points out of a possible four hundred. Shaneice and her classmates received the good news this morning.

Shaneice Lord, Top P.S.E. Student
“I feel very happy because I worked very hard to get where I am right now. I worked very hard. My teacher drilled and tested us very hard. We did evening classes, Saturday classes. I was pretty sure I was going to come in the top twenty-five.”

Sherry Ali, Principal, Bernice Yorke School
“I’m overwhelmed and overjoyed right now. We expected at least two or three to come in the top twenty-five so we’re overjoyed and elated right now.”

Ann-Marie Williams
“How hard you drilled your class?”

Sherry Ali
“Well, every year we do the same thing. We work hard. We work hard early. The positive thing about this class is that they’ve been with us since pre-school so they have been molded into our way.”

Ann-Marie Williams
“A small class helps?”

Sherry Ali
“Yes, a small class does help. It’s a total of twelve students that took the exam.”
