Today, the Shepherd’s Academy Primary School in Belmopan held a motorcade in honor of their standard 6 student, Ashton Daniels, who placed first in the 2017 Primary School Examination (PSE) for the Cayo District. Ashton finished 8th overall in the country. We spoke to Ashton who told us about his preparations going into the PSE.
Ashton Daniels, Student at The Sheperd’s Academy: We had to do extra time in school. We had morning and evening classes. Morning classes were from 8 to 8:30 and evening classes were from 3 to 4 o clock in the evening. I’d also ask for extra work over the Easter and Christmas vacation. I would like to be a mathematician or an IT specialist.
The school took to the streets of Belmopan this afternoon to celebrate their scholastic achievements. The motorcade started at the Shepherd’s Academy and ended at the Tiger Town Park here in Belmopan.
