Screen_Shot_2015-04-22_at_7.59.36_PMOn last night’s newscast we highlighted the accomplishments of the Corozal Methodist Primary School in sports. Tonight, the school is once again in the news for more outstanding performances. This time, we highlight two students who did well on a local competition that was held at the Corozal Community College Open Day last Thursday.  That competition was a math Olympiad that was based on problems that students are reviewing for the Primary School Examinations. Sylvino Chi is the standard six teacher at the school.

“The competition was challenging and the children manage to win this game.”

“Is this the first time that the school wins this competition?”


Sylvino Chi – Teacher, STD 6


“No, we have won before and well CCC had it better this year because they recognize the students this year and gave them their trophies and so it was a great experience for them and honestly I feel very good that we found out that the students are doing excellent and it brings me great satisfaction knowing that they are prepared for this exam, the PSE.  I want to thank the parents and the students and the Principal of the school for giving the students that opportunity and we are hoping that they will do well for the PSE.”


We spoke with the duo who won the competition, Julian Hi and Kevin Hal, who had differing opinions at some points but managed to do some great team work that landed them at the top.

“They had buzzers, it was pretty hasty because we were a little shaky and not that ready because our teacher told us that we were in it just a few days before. Mostly when we saw the question we saw like oh we’ve done that before and we thought that we can do this and I felt quite positive that we can do anything that they shows us right there.”

“As you went through the competition I imagine that there were a lot of challenging points, how did you guys manage to flow through those?”


Julian Hi/Kevin Hal


“Most of our competitors did not answer them so the question was actually voided. I am not really surprised not happy because is just the town.”


Dalila Ical – Reporter


“I understand that you guys still supposed to take your PSE, do you think that this competition and your participation could help you get a better grade in math in your PSE?”


Julian Hi/Kevin Hal


“Yes it gives s us a little bit of more experience but mostly it just gives us a little fun and time to think that PSE isn’t that hard.”

 

The school has been actively taking part in several competitions in sports and academics over the past years.
