A Vincentian born in the United Kingdom is one of the top three performers in this year’s Caribbean Primary Exit Assessment (CPEA) with an overall average of 97.8 per cent.

Kai Francis, who wrote the examinations as a pupil of the Kingstown Preparatory School (KPS) tied with Matthew Wilson of the St Mary’s Roman Catholic School (SMRC) and Ajani Neverson of the Windsor Primary School (WPS) for first place.

“I feel excited. Who wouldn’t feel excited they got first place in CPEA,” Francis said yesterday after his graduation ceremony at the Arnos Vale Playing Field.

The Sharpesdale resident said he is looking forward to attending the St Vincent Grammar School (SVGS) and he had expected to do well as he had been working hard.

Science is his favorite subject and he is hoping to have a career in either technology or biology.

“I can be a software programmer. I actually know how to develop simple websites,” he said while noting that the help of his parents and teachers helped propel him to the top of the CPEA.

Kai is the son of Samantha Campbell and Carl Francis and said if students want to achieve, they must study hard and keep searching for new information.

He said he is not really a sportsman and prefers programming websites and learning from the Internet through educational videos in his spare time.
