Zoe fulfils expectations of teachers at Windsor

Earning a place in the top 10 of the Common Entrance Examination posed no difficulty for Windsor Primary School student, Zoe Porter.{{more}}

Porter placed 3rd for girls and 4th overall, a spot she shares with Sariah Jackson of the Lodge Village Government School. She is among six students who scored 100 per cent in Mathematics. For English, she scored 86.36 per cent and in General Paper, 95 per cent.

The daughter of Albert and Bianca Porter said that she is extremely happy about her performance.

The resident of Young Island attributed her success to various extra lessons that she attended, the hard work of her teachers and encouragement from her family.

The articulate student, who will venture to the Girls’ High School in September, expressed a desire to become a pediatric surgeon when she grows up.

“I want to help children. I do not like to see them suffering or in great agony,” the 11-year-old said confidently.

“I also want to be a part of the World Pediatric Project when they come to St Vincent and also help children from all over the OECS, who come here as well”.

Headteacher Carol Smith is pleased with her student’s performance, as she expected nothing less.

“Zoe was an A student since Grade K. She has never let us down. Right through, she kept it up and she was on the honour roll… so we expected her to come in the top 10,” she said.

Smith noted that this year, although the Windsor Primary School had only one person in the top 10, the school had an estimated 99 per cent overall pass rate.

Porter, who is also the valedictorian of her year, will perform her duties at the graduation ceremony tomorrow at the Glen Baptist Church.(BK)
