The Grade Six class at the Golden Grove Primary School has used the School Based Assessment (SBA) component for Social Studies to give back to the community and recognise fellow teachers and students at the educational institution.

Over the past few weeks the group, comprised of 61 students, donated care packages to three of their fellow students who recently lost their mothers.

Grade 5 student Carlos Noel lost his mother shortly after Christmas, while sisters Iyanna Bright of Grade 4 and Iesha Bright from Grade 1 lost their mother on Christmas Day.

In the second exercise, another group of students raised funds through the sale of candy and ice-cream and the proceeds from the sale were used to host an appreciation banquet in honor of three educators.

The teachers were awarded in at least a dozen categories which included kindest, strangest, most soft-spoken, longest serving and teacher of the year.

The final exercise for the SBA will include a beautification project that involves planting flowers under a mango tree located at the front of the school.

According to teachers at the school, the area poses a great problem as it becomes very murky when it rains. In an effort to solve this issue, administrators at the school have decided to transform it into a flower garden.

The school will be reaching out to the public for assistance in obtaining flowers to beautify the area.

Social Studies teacher Carol-Anne Richards said the project forms part of the SBA component for Social Studies in preparation for the Grade Six National Assessment in June.

She said over the past few years the SBAs have moved from research to community-based learning.
