Six Schools are through to the finals of the KCCU Primary School Quiz. The Schools are Belair Government, Kingstown Preparatory, Evesham Primary, Fitzhughes Primary, Barrouallie Government and Colonarie Primary schools.
Eleven schools took part in the Preliminary round, which was held this morning at the St. Vincent Grammar School. The pupils were quizzed in categories such as Sports, Current Affairs, History and General Knowledge.
The Finals are slated for Saturday November 30th.
The talent of primary and secondary school students will be showcased today, 24th October, when the Ministry of Education hosts the Annual Schools’ Independence Rally, in collaboration with the National Independence Committee.
Grade 6 students will not be writing the usual Common Entrance Examinations this academic year, 2013/2014. Instead, over the next few months, they will complete a number of assessments with the hope of being successful at the new Caribbean Primary Exit Assessment (CPEA). The CPEA is an assessment of the key literacies (Mathematical, Language, Scientific and Civic) required by students exiting the Primary School System.
