Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves has extended congratulations to the students who were successful at the 2018 sitting of the Caribbean Primary Exit Assessment (CPEA).
Speaking on Star Radio this morning, Prime Minister Gonsalves said he welcomed the improvement in performance of the students compared to last year. He also commended the teachers, parents and other family members for supporting the students.
Dr. Gonsalves noted that quite a number of schools recorded 100% pass rate in this year’s CPEA.
According to the Prime Minister among the schools with 100% passes are: Brighton Methodist, Calliaqua Anglican Primary, Cane End Government, Chateaubelair Methodist School, Clare Valley Government, Dorsetshire Hill Government, Evesham Methodist School, Lower Bay Primary, Mayreau Government School, Mustique Government School, Touroma Government, Richland Park Seventh Day Adventist, Owia Government, Stubbs Government School, and Windsor Primary School.
The Prime Minister said one school on the Leeward side of the Island recorded a pass rate of 62.5%, which is the lowest for the 2018 CPEA.
Meanwhile, in relation to the issue of placement of students at secondary schools, Prime Minister Gonsalves is appealing to parents to allow their child/children to attend the school to which they are placed in accord with their performance in the CPEA.
