CPEA Students assured all is not lost

There are 41 students who were not assigned to Secondary Schools this year and the Ministry of Education is committed to ensure that they are placed next year.

Informer spoke to Acting Deputy Chief Education Officer Ms. Michelle Peters who confirmed,” of course we  - the Ministry of Education (MOE) would have looked at their performances and we decided that they needed an extra year to develop themselves to become even more competent in areas and of course, they will be placed into Secondary Schools next year. They will go through the entire process, go through the internal assessment again and culminate with the final examination to show that they have improved; but improvement will not come overnight so what the MOE has decided is to assess the students. Special Education Officers will be on board to assess the students; after that there will be a diagnosis and from there we are going to intervene.” The modus operandi will be as follows: Principals first will have to come on board; parents will have to come on board; at the MOE we have a technical staff there ready to run with those children and give the Principal and staff the support that they would need to ensure these children would have progressed from A to B in that year; and thereafter they would go through the entire process and do the final examination again and get an opportunity to be placed at a Secondary School. So the children need to ensure that they maximize the opportunity so that they could gain access to a Secondary School, remembering that it had been delayed for a year.” In response to the question as to how the students will be deployed in the School given the fact that they may have to join other students who will be sitting the exam for the first time, Ms. Peters responded in the affirmative, ”that they will be in the grade 6 class room because they are still within the age range for the exam so they will be given the opportunity to go over the exam with the new batch of students.” In conclusion Ms. Peters implored that the students, “understand they have been kept back for their own benefit to ensure they are able to cope with the work and pace of Secondary School.”
