PHILIPSBURG – Minister of Education Silveria Jacobs took time to wish all secondary school students much success with their upcoming exams.

Minister Jacobs encouraged all students to focus, and put all effort into working hard as this is the last stretch towards tertiary education and/or entrance into the work field.

“The process to get to this point took several years, but we all know the last stretch weighs heaviest. So continue to focus, push harder than you ever have, and do not give up. You are almost there. Believe in yourself and trust that your best will see you through. Ensure that you’ve gotten enough rest, have a good breakfast to fuel the brain and drink lots of water,” She advised.

The Foundation Based Exit (FBE) exams for the elementary schools will commence next week on Tuesday, May 16, up to and including Friday, May 19. Minister Jacobs encourages all parents and teachers to motivate and encourage all the students to finish “with a bang.”

“The education of our students should be our first priority. We must ensure that we are providing conducive environments for maximal success,” Minister Jacobs stated.
