'I wanted a perfect score'
Bright Beginnings Education Centre student Hannah-Camille Rowe, after attaining a 99.6 overall average in this year's Grade Six Achievement Test, said she is disappointed that she did not get a perfect score.
Achieving 100 per cent in science, social studies and communication task, she acknowledged that getting 99 per cent in mathematics and language arts, two important subjects, is the reason for her disappointment.
"Maths is my favourite subject, English I don't like too much but I wanted to get a perfect score," she told The Gleaner.
"I really can't tell where I went wrong in these two subjects, especially maths," she continued.
Hannah-Camille, who will be attending Campion College in September, attributed her performance to her natural talent, the hard work of her teachers, parents, family and church members.
"I know that I am a talented student so I will study hard at Campion to master these two subjects.
"I will be myself, I will not change for peers. I am a beautiful girl who is very funny. I like who I am," she said.
She praised her parents, Garth and Camille Rowe, both of whom she said always made sure that she studied for her examination.
Grade-six teacher Georgette Honeywell described Hannah-Camille as a hard-working student who is not afraid of challenges.
"She works very hard and is not afraid to take on challenges. We do our best to ensure that all our students have a grasp of all the subject areas," Honeywell told The Gleaner.
