Hard work pays off for Radesh
July 6, 2004
RAADESH Ramsarup, who placed second among students writing the Secondary Schools Entrance Examination (SSEE) this year, found the exam easy.
But he put in a lot of studies in preparation for the exam and was just one mark behind the top student this year, Kia Persaud of the West Ruimveldt Primary School in Georgetown, who scored 558 marks out of a possible 563.
Raadhesh lives with his parents Hanoman and Omattie and two sisters at Taymouth Manor on the Essequibo Coast and attended the Taymouth Manor Primary School.
His performance at the SSEE has earned him a place at Queen’s College in Georgetown.
Raadhesh, who seems to be the quiet type, is very happy and excited about his success at the examination.
He said his parents contributed a lot to his success.
His father and mother stayed up with him during his studies each night and always ensured that he took his school work seriously.
He loves to watch television and wants to become a scientist.
He told the Chronicle that he loves to do experiments and does many at home during his spare time.
His hobbies include reading and playing cricket. He likes chicken, channa, fruits and chowmein.
His advice to students across the country is to study hard, always do your homework and be obedient to parents.
His parents are also excited and happy over their only son’s success at the examination.
Senior Mistress of Taymouth Manor Primary School, Mrs. Pramellawattie Persaud, told the Chronicle that Raadhesh is outstanding in his studies and uses his imagination a lot.
His class teachers, Mr. Gahamsham Katchou and Miss Ansonia Ramnarine, said studies are usually from 07:30 hrs to 08:30 hrs before the start of the morning sessions and at noon to 12:30 hrs before the start of the afternoon classes.
