Walter Perriott-first place for CT
At the end of each primary school year in Belize, the children that are going on to high school are tested. The Primary School Examination (PSE) is the conclusion of the 8 years of study and hard work before high school. The students are tested in the areas of Math, Science, English, and Social Studies.

This year the PSE scores have dropped significantly nation wide in every subject except social studies.  The mean score in English was down eight percent and math five percentage points. The top finishers this year were mostly from public schools, not the elite private schools; incidentally, all schools in Belize used the same curriculum.

Aliyah Marin of Holy Redeemer in Belize City topped the exams with a score of three hundred and eighty five points (96.25%); in second place, Josette McGann of United Evergreen Primary in Cayo; with three hundred and seventy six points (94%) and Jordan Murrillo of Belize Elementary in Belize City with three hundred and sixty nine points (92.25%).

Megan Gillett-second place in CT
This year, 24 students from Crooked Tree Village School sat the exams with all 24 passing; another success for Principal Winnie Gillett.  The top three students are Walter Perriott with a score of 88 percent; Megan Gillett, 87 percent and third place went to Ishawn Arana with 80 percent.   

Congratulations to all the students, teachers and parents of Crooked Tree Village… Job well done!
Ishawn Arana-third place
