The results of the Caribbean Primary Exit Assessment have revealed that yet again, females in St Vincent and the Grenadines continue to outperform their male counterparts at the academic level.
According to the results released yesterday, 88.6 percent of females attained a passing grade in the exams compared to just seventy-three percent of males.
In addition, the top two performers this year are both female.
Eula Johnny, the Principal of St Mary’s Roman Catholic School – which tied for first place with the Windsor Primary – says the girls appear more focused than the boys.
Miss Johnny says boys must be taught to balance school work and play, since both are equally important to childhood development.
