Class Four students of the St Lawrence Primary School are better prepared to take on the Barbados Secondary Schools Entrance Examination (BSSEE) thanks to Resolution Life Assurance Company Ltd (ResLife).
The Worthing, Christ Church-based insurance company today presented 25 Class Four students of the nearby primary school with 11-Plus Exam Kits containing among other things, essentials for the big day tomorrow.
Thousands of primary school students across the island will write the BSEE, the results of which will determine which public secondary school they will attend.
In her comments to students, Chief Executive Officer of ResLife Ms. Cheryl Senhouse reminded the youngsters that while importance is to be given to the Common Entrance Exam and the results they achieved in this test, it was a stepping stone with many more achievements in life to come.
Senhouse urged the 18 girls and seven boys not to be daunted by fear of the BSSEE.
“We at Resolution Life Assurance want you students of St Lawrence Primary to walk with confidence tomorrow – with conviction, with belief, with faith, with certainty, with trust and with assurance that you will do your very best,” she stressed.
Meanwhile, Principal of St Lawrence Primary Ms. Andrea Cheltenham thanked ResLife for the gesture, noting that the gifts to the children were timely and welcomed.
Class Four teachers Ms. Suzanne Browne and Ms. Danisha Herbert-Dyall said the students were prepared for the examination and they expected them to perform well.
