Chilling after exam


Share post:

WITH TEN years of preparation and three hours of execution behind them, thousands of students who took the Barbados Secondary Schools’ Examination, also known as the 11-Plus, yesterday engaged in the tradition of unwinding at some of the island’s most popular restaurants and sports bars.
 Students from as far as Gordon Walters and St Stephen’s Primary were among the hundreds dining or enjoying the company of friends and family along the south coast.
 At the Accra Resort the after-meal-activity was a movie while a few metres down there were no empty seats as patrons attending Bubba’s Sports Bar had to wait a while until space was made available for new customers.
 The popular Cheffette restaurants provided the all-in-one package of a meal with the play park,  attracting an age group that in a few weeks’ time would consider such frolicking to be beneath them.
Divi Southwinds was just as crammed, with general manager Alvin Jemmott taking the time to greet and interact with the children and adults who were enjoying the fare on offer.
