Saint Lucia’s Chief Education Officer, Dr. Fiona Phillip-Mayer, Monday advised parents of students sitting the Common Entrance Exam not to put the youngsters under undue pressure.

A total of 2,167 students were sitting the exam on Tuesday.

“We want to encourage our parents to be kind to our students, to not put undue pressure on them, to really enjoy the moment with them – applaud their efforts, appreciate their skills and wish them well,” the Chief Education Officer said ahead of the examination.

“We do hope that whatever results come out we can be pleased with them,” Phillip-Mayer said in a statement released to the media.

“We are part of the Universal Secondary School Education Programme and so every one of our children gets an opportunity,” she noted.

“But we want to ensure that whichever secondary school they go to, they are pleased with their own efforts,” the Chief Education Officer said.
