BRANDON WILSON of Bellefield Primary School is looking forward to the Christmas holidays. Not only to eat and be merry, as is customary in the festive season, but to also get more time to study for the upcoming Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT).
"Our school will be giving holidays. We will still be having some extra classes at school, but I will certainly have more time at home to study."
Brandon added: "Especially with (Junior) Schools' Challenge Quiz now behind us … , I can focus more on my GSAT studies."
Meanwhile, Brandon's parents, Herman and Joana Wilson, are also expected to chip in and make use of the holidays and make more time in helping their son in his studies.
"They have been continuing to play an important role in my studies," Brandon said. "They really want me to do well, so they try their best to help to keep me focused and to help in whatever way they can."
Brandon's teacher, Lenieve Watson, is pleased with his progress so far. "Brandon continues to do well," she said. "He is focused and is working real hard, so it is looking good for him at this stage. And as the time draws nearer (for exams), he should be even in better stead."
