UPP MPs and caretakers complete distribution of Grade Six National Assessment supplies across government primaries as exams start today

Students across the country began writing the Grade Six National Assessment
today, June 5, with many of them having been gifted with supplies to enhance
their performance during the two-day sitting.
Parliamentary representatives and caretakers of the United Progressive Party
(UPP) recently completed an exercise in which they distributed exam supplies
– including pencil cases, pens and pencils, rulers, erasers, and geometry sets
–which are important tools for the national assessment.
During the exercise, the UPP representatives also used the opportunity to
encourage the students, admonishing them to trust in God “as they can do all
things” through Him who strengthens them.  
The Party members also expressed confidence in the students that they would
do well during the exams.
The principals of the respective government primary schools and the students
expressed appreciation for the kind gesture.
UPP St. John’s Rural South Caretaker Gladys Potter – the Party’s welfare officer
– was the driver of this national initiative and got the branches’ welfare
officers involved in the endeavour. All those involved expressed their own
satisfaction at making this simple but worthwhile investment in the students
and in the community schools.

Meanwhile, a student of the Golden Grove Primary School thanked Potter,
saying the donation was timely, as some students would not have been able to
purchase the exam supplies in time.
The female student made a pledge of her own, promising she would do her
best during the exams and not let Potter down.
The Party is extending its heartfelt best wishes to all students embarking on
the annual examinations.
The Grade Six National Assessment runs from today until tomorrow, June 6,
with hundreds of students from government primary and private
institutions sitting the exams.  Students will be tested on Language, Math,
Science and Social Studies.
