    Nothing surprising if the top 11+ students are going there year after year.
    Jones next time and for a further 6 or 7 years after that put the top achievers at St.Lucy Secondary and Grantley Adams and the underachievers at Harrison and Queens and see what would happen.

    Since when did we become such negative people? Just congratulate the winners. I went to St. Leonard’s Girls and did very well. I have a master’s degree. It’s not the school. It’s the mind set.

    Well done Kolij. However, it is time these scholarships were made more transparent.
    We still do not know the CXC outcomes; we still do not know if it is the quality of teaching at Kolif, if so we should spread that quality; we still do not know if it is the social background of the students.
    Further, the system has been going for much longer than any member of the government has been alive. It is time we change the criteria for getting national scholarships.
    All first degree recipients should be compelled to go to UWI, unless the subject is not taught there.
    Otherwise, most spending should b for post-graduate work. Part of the agreement should be to return and teach for a short period – passing on that knowledge.
