GSAT Exam Preparation

GSAT cheers and tears Published: Sunday | June 20, 2010 6 Comments and 0 Reactions GSAT students at Obistan Prep. - Norman Grindley/Chief PhotographerNadisha Hunter, Gleaner Writer ANXIOUS PARENTS and students, some with cheers of joy, some with tears of disappointment, converged at primary schools across the island last Friday to collect the long-awaited results of the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) and the subsequent placing by the education ministry. Tears settled in the already swollen eyes of Brianna Morrison, a student of Windward Road Primary School, as she outlined the grades, which landed her at Windward Road Primary and Junior High. Her grades of 71, 77, 83, 77 per cent and 10 out of 12 (communi-cation task) caused the traumatised student to be questioning the placement system. "I had to cry because it is unfair. I worked hard for my grades and now this is the school I got - Windward Road Primary and Junior High," she said. "I don't know how they place us because I know my grades could take me to a better school," Morrison argued. But as several students and teachers shared in her pain, they were also busy celebrating the high achievements of the school. Rennay McDermoth, who copped the top spot with a 97 per cent average, could not hold back the glee as she thanked her teachers and parents for the help they gave her. "I am elated! I knew I would do it because I studied and prayed a lot," she boasted. But unlike most 12-year-olds, who would request going on an excursion to celebrate, Rennay said she could not wait to attend church to rejoice. Elated Living in the troubled community of Denham Town in west Kingston was not an insurmountable problem for Jolene Williams. She scored close to a 90 per cent average and is on her way to achieving her dream of attending the prestigious Holy Childhood High School. Her mother, Sandra Irving, was elated as she told anyone who would listen how hard she had worked to ensure that her daughter was prepared. "I am feeling good. I was expecting it," Irving declared. "Nothing no stop my daughter from studying. It could a be gun-shot, she just tune it out," the proud mother said. At Clan Carthy Primary, it was a mixture of anger and delight. "I am very proud of my son. Him make me proud," said Miquel Jones, the father of Miquel Jones Jr. "I worked with him. I always come to him school to make sure everything all right, but I have to thank his teacher, Winsome Reid," he said. But it wasn't the same for Shelly Ann Simon, who was outraged by her daughter, Tiffany Reid's, results. "She could do better. I am disappointed," she said. At St Richard's Primary, several smiling faces greeted The Gleaner. The grade six coordinator, teaching legend, Eulie Mantock, said the school had done exceptionally well in the exam, with several students getting in the high 90s for their averages.
