CXC hosted two webinars in May; one was held on Wednesday 4 May and dealt with preparing for CSEC Caribbean History examinations, while the other was held on Thursday 12 May and dealt with Science SBAs.
The Caribbean History Webinar was facilitated by Dr Rita Pemberton, while the Science SBA event was facilitated by Ms Allison Peart. Both webinars stimulated a lot of discussion among the participants and between some participants and the facilitators.
