Discipline fuels Jeremiah’s success


Share post:

Discipline was key to the success of the top boy in the 2021 Barbados Secondary Schools Entrance Examination, Jeremiah Browne.

Both he and his father Jeremy Browne made that point on Monday after his results were announced live on television.

They were all smiles as they spoke to the media at St Stephen’s Primary School, where Jeremiah attended and Jeremy works as an educator.

“I feel very excited because of all of the hard work paid off and I am going to Queen’s College,” Jeremiah said.

He received 99 in English and 98 in Mathematics, his favourite subject.

Jeremiah added that constant practice helped him.

“My teachers gave me practice tests and if I got anything wrong, I reviewed my errors and tried not to make them again,” he added.

During the interview Jeremy said Jeremiah was not forced to sacrifice his hobbies such as video games and playing football.

“To be honest some children are naturally disciplined and he is one of those types of children. He got up, prioritised his work. I didn’t have to take away anything or change any of his habits. He did what he had to do first and enjoyed after.

“So I am satisfied and happy for him because he put in the work and he deserved it,” Jeremy added.

His mother Melissa, who was at work, said she knew he would have done well, and being the top boy was “the icing on the cake”. (TG)
