As in previous years, students selected to enter the Roseau, and Portsmouth Secondary Schools’ catchment area will receive forms on which they are to indicate their ranked choice of schools they would like to attend. Once these forms have been returned to the Ministry, the Ministry will work with the Principals of all secondary schools in these catchment areas to ensure that all students in the Roseau and Portsmouth secondary school catchment areas are placed in school.
The Ministry of Education & Human Resource Development would like to thank all those involved in the Grade 6 National Assessment, members of the subject committees, teachers who wrote items for the examination, the centre coordinators and supervisors, the Dominica Police and professionals in the Ministry who monitored the conduct of the examinations.
