Optimism flowed through the bones of six students of Boundbrook Primary in Port Antonio, Portland, who yesterday sat the first day of the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) but are already predicting scholarships for each other.

For 11-year-old students Kemiel Vidal, Jahniqui Whyte, Shadine McLean, Adrene Osbourne, and D'Kenya Francis, along with their senior of one year, Danielle Karam, Thursday's mathematics and social studies exams were amazingly easy.

"I am positive that I will get high marks and, after exam is over, I am confident that I will secure a scholarship to the school of my first choice, which is Titchfield High," Shadine told The Gleaner.

The other five members of that group expressed similar sentiments although, with the exception of D'Kenya, who has selected Campion College as her first-choice school, the remaining four have also selected Titchfield.

Kemiel's father, Copeland Vidal, felt his presence at the school would offer a moral boost to his daughter who he expects to pass the GSAT with flying colours.

"I work with Wray & Nephew," he said. "My daughter means a lot to me and, therefore, knowing that GSAT is today, I travelled all the way from Clarendon to offer my support to her and to wish her all the best. I am confident that she will do well, and I am expecting her to secure a scholarship."
