PORT ANTONIO, Portland:
JERMAINE JAMES of Port Antonio Primary School is confident that he will put on a good performance come next month when thousands of the island's children sit the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT).
"I am better prepared now. I know I will do well, and I am eagerly awaiting that day. My study is going very well, and I have every confidence in myself. My teacher has already told me to be calm and relaxed during the exam and not to pressure myself too much."
Teacher Kennecha Davis is equally optimistic that Jermaine will perform well in GSAT.
"We are getting there. Things are going good, but there are other areas of preparedness and additional studies that will have to take place, before and after GSAT. As it is now, I will always have new strategies and other measures to implement and develop, as no one is really perfect. One such thing is accuracy, and with continuous teaching and coaching by peers and myself, we should be successful."
