The Atkinson Primary School won the 1st ever Kalinago Territory Grade 6 Inter-school Competition held at the Salybia Primary School on May 8, 2019. The theme of the competition was “Our Kalinago, Our Children, Our Future”, and it was sponsored by Dr Theodor Thomas. Maureen Valmond, Coordinator of the competition said five schools took part in the competition and were quizzed in five different categories.
She said, “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. 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 $EC 600 each and their school received $EC 1000. The Concord Primary School came in second. Each member of the Concord team received EC $300.
