National swimmer Danielle Treasure is known for her skills in the pool.
Today, she also became known for her academic abilities when the results of the 2015 Barbados Secondary School Entrance Examination were presented to the public, with her being announced top student No. 4.
Gaining 97 in English and 100 in mathematics ,with a total of 248.43, A, Danielle will be making her way to The St Michael School in September.
“I am happy because I did very well. My teachers gave me lots of homework, and I did my own work. At home, I looked in my books and I did some reading,” the student who did not receive any extra lessons in addition to her classwork told Barbados TODAY.
Swimming was one activity the student, who is currently preparing to represent Barbados in an upcoming swimming match, did not give up.
“I kept swimming because I found that helped me a lot. I used to add up how many kilometres I did, and how much I didn’t practise. Swimming helped me to focus more,” Danielle revealed.
She said The St Michael School was her first choice because she new many other students going there, and it was also close to home.
Teacher Kirsty Lashley described Danielle as a diligent and rounded student who worked very hard and communicated well with her schoolmates.
