    I would never agree to the constant testing of children which creats winners and loosers effecting their self- esteem, there are no winners here, as the anxiety of the exam room which we subject our children too after the 11th hour , is horrifying and un called for.

    Do you pick the best and throw out the reast ?

    The entire comunity needs to lift our children up ,even if parent don’t or can’t do it ” It takes a vilage”.

    Seniors are the keepers of the keys.

    Where are the role models ? Who will give of their time ?

    Again, confonting children with the horrors of the exam room with trick questions , that creats lower test scores from the” get go” , we all know that practice makes perfect, some more or less for others.

    BIg people need to show kindness ; apreciation and enthusiasm, make learning an insatiable desire, make it fun and interesting, to and for our children.

    Do you not know that childen work harder and longer than most office workers.

    We don’t need a new aproach very 6 months ,we need a better approach.
    What is next, a boys school and a separate girls school, you have failed at every thing else.
