Bell scores big at Bellas Gate

Head Girl at Bellas Gate Primary School near Old Harbour in St Catherine, Jinelle Bell, is among 1000 students who received national awards this month for their accomplishment in the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT).

“I feel proud and happy knowing that I am the overall top performer and top girl [at my school],” said the 11-year-old aspiring pediatrician.

“You can expect great achievements from me in high school,” she added.

Jinelle, who will attend St Catherine High School in Spanish Town, scored a 96.2 percent average.
