Students to be honoured at National CXC Awards

 

Student awardees entertain at the 2010 Awards

The Ministry of Education has planned to hold its annual National CXC Awards on March 30. During the awarads the Ministry will honour 38 students at the Montserrat Cultural Centre.

 In a release outlining the plans for the award the Ministry explains that the National CXC Awards Programme was initiated in 2003 from a recommendation by the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) that Ministries of Education of territories that write the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examinations celebrate the achievements of students who successfully sit the May/June session each year.

 Miss Yasmine White, Education Officer responsible for curriculum and exams, pointed out, “The premise for the recommendation is that the acknowledgement of students’ performance will motivate them to pursue excellence in future aspirations, and at the same time, serve as an incentive to those students coming behind to not settle for mediocrity.”

11 students from 2010 and 27 from 2011 will receive awards. “The numbers have increased noticeably because we have expanded the awards to include those who received five or more subjects,” White informs in the release.

Last year 54 candidates from the Montserrat Secondary School (MSS) wrote the CSEC May-June examinations. 25 will receive an award at the ceremony next week.

The criteria for determining the awardees are stipulated by CXC, although territories can now make adjustments. Consequently, the Ministry of Education (MoE) has included a Caribbean Advance Proficiency Examination (CAPE award) and this year, for the first time, a Caribbean Certificate of Secondary Level Competence (CCSLC) award.

The awards are as follows:

  • Most Outstanding Performance in Humanities
  • Most Outstanding Performance in Business Education
  • Most Outstanding Performance in Technical & Vocational subjects
  • Most Outstanding Performance in the Sciences
  • Overall Outstanding CSEC Student
  • Overall Outstanding CAPE Student
  • Overall Outstanding CCSLC Students
  • 5 subject passes
  • 6 subject passes
  • 7 subject passes
  • 8 or more subject passes

Since the commencement of the awards programme, recipients had been given trophies and monetary prizes. This year, the Ministry is unable to give monetary prizes and so, the awards are limited to trophies and medals.
