Politicians offer best wishes to students sitting Common Entrance
Many politicians have offered their best wishes for students sitting the Common Entrance Examination today.
Said Prime Minister Allen Chastanet:
"Today, as our students head into Common Entrance exams let us show them we are with them. Let us provide them our support whether it be with that reassuring hug, an encouraging word and of course our collective prayers.
I recall my own times getting ready for exams in my pre-teens. There are so many emotions that you go through at this time. What got me through was always the encouragement and support of family, friends and my teachers.
To the students I say, give it your best. Give every question your all.
Parents, Teachers, I know you may be nervous for your kids today, but rest assured you have prepared them for this day and you must continue to prepare them for the world ahead no matter the outcome.
Believe in them, so they believe in themselves. Join me in wishing all the students, their parents and teachers the best.
Education Minister Gale Rigobert shared: "Join me in wishing all the students who will be writing the Common Entrance Exams today the best of luck! May the lessons from your teachers, the support and encouragement from your parents, family and friends all guide and assist you on this very important day."
SLP Spokesperson for Education Guibion Ferdinand posted, "Today June 12th 2019, hundreds of students from schools around Saint Lucia write the high stake Common Entrance Examination.
I implore all students to remain calm and confidently apply the knowledge/skills they have acquired to perform at their very best. I trust that the important logistics at the various examination centres will facilitate smooth operations during the course of the day.
Students, I know that you will do your best today, to make your hardworking parents, teachers and other loved ones proud.
Best wishes, God's peace and every success to all of you."
