Layou Government wins Kiddy Cricket quiz competition


A mere one point was enough to see the Layou Government School retain their hold on the Scotia Bank Kiddy Cricket quiz trophy for another year.{{more}}

At the finals of the competition held at the Red Cross headquarters last Thursday, Layou Government, represented by the duo of Milliceia Quashie and Cosiem Millington, tallied 100 points, nipping into second place the Spring Village Methodist, who scored 99.

But the Spring Village Methodist’s pair of Jahalia Anthony and Davon Ellis collected the awards for the best female and male participant, respectively. Ellis, however, had to share the spotlight with Millington.

There was more in store for Ellis, who received an additional trophy from the co-ordinators of the quiz, who rewarded him for placing first for males in the 2015 Caribbean Primary Exit Assessment (CPEA) examinations.

Also, Margaret Mc Allister of the Clare Valley Government School was adjudged the most outstanding teacher in this year’s programme.

Completing the other scores attained by the finalists, Cane End Government placed third with 94 points; Gomea Methodist, 76; St Mary’s Roman Catholic, 64; Bequia Seventh-Day Adventist, 58 and Clare Valley Government, 42.

The finals were without the participation of the 2012 winner, the Pamelus Burke Primary and also the Sandy Bay Primary, as they were no-shows at the final, after emerging as winners of their respective zones in the preliminary round.(RT)
