Mother’s support reason for NGSA success
-says sixth-placed Jeremiah Bentham
Eleven-year-old Jeremiah Bentham describes his mother as a “pusher” without whom he could not have done so extraordinarily well at the recently completed Grade Six Assessment. He placed sixth in the country with 524 marks, topping the public schools.
“She was very much encouraging; she is a hardworking supporting mother who is always there for you at your side whenever you may need her, and she is very understanding. Without her support I really don’t think I would have done this well,” Jerimiah said during a recent interview with the Sunday Stabroek.
