The Atkinson Primary School won the 1st ever Kalinago Territory Grade 6 Inter-school Competition.

The competition was sponsored by Dr Theodor Thomas and was held at the Salybia primary school, on May 8th,2019.

Coordinator of the competition, Maureen Valmond, said five schools took part in the competition and were quizzed in five different categories.

“Children were quizzed on the four core subjects; math, English, Social studies and Science and we had a special segment of Kalinago history. So, in all, we had 5 rounds. There were five participating schools: Sineku Primary School, Salybia Primary School, Atkinson Primary School, Concord Primary School and Light House Christian Academy,” she said.

Valmond added, “We want to make this an annual event and the objective of the interschool competition was to actually get the children of the primary schools prepared for the national grade six competition, so the students were only grade six students.”

Each team consisted of two students. The winners received $EC600 each and their school received $EC1000. The Concord Primary School came in second. Each member of the Concord team received $300.    

The theme of the competition was “OUR KALINAGO, OUR CHILDREN, OUR FUTURE”.
