Seven hundred and ninety-three (793) primary school pupils in Tobago will sit the Secondary Entrance Assessment (SEA) examinations – 413 boys and 380 girls on Tuesday.
On Friday (March 25), Chief Secretary Orville London and other Executive Council members distributed examination supplies to the pupils across Tobago.
“SEA exam is not just another examination; but it is in fact a gateway to another stage in your life”, London told pupils of the Mason Hall Government Primary School. He said even though each child will not get his or her first or even second choice, every child can be comforted knowing that the school to which they are assigned would be well constructed and furnished and has quality teachers.
The former school principal encouraged the pupils to have a good breakfast, get to the venue early, follow the instructions of their teachers and ensure that they do their best.
London reminded the students that they had some of the best teachers in the country and also parents who supported them throughout their preparations. He told them: “You are prepared as any other child in the rest of the country so go into that examination room with confidence.”
