GIS – Cameron Cupid, a former student of the Ti-Rocher Combined School, is the winner of this year’s Mathematics Quiz Competition.
Cupid now attends the Saint Mary’s College, and promises to be successful in his educational pursuits.
The mathematics competition is aimed at improving mathematics results at Common Entrance Examinations.
Chief Education Officer, Marcus Edward, said the competition seeks to prepare students for the new school year.
“We at the Ministry of Education have recognized that after the long seven or eight week summer vacation, sometimes there is a little regression. The children lose a little. And so, this competition helps to keep them focused, so that when the return to school, we know that they are ready to go.”
Parliamentary representative for Castries-East, Hon. Philip J. Pierre, said opportunities in education should be open to every child.
“Education should not be based on anything that is political. Education should be for everybody and everybody ought to have an equal opportunity to receive an education so they can take their place not only in Saint Lucia, but in the world.”
Second place competition winner is Ahijah Eristhee who previously attended Bocage Combined, while third place winner is Meekela Gabriel, who also previously attended Ti- Rocher Combined.
