PM’s school advice
Prime Minister Freundel Stuart wants the thousands of children who are preparing for the transition from primary to secondary education to know that the school they are heading to or where they live does not represent an edge or a setback.
Stuart, featured speaker at the sixth annual Lawson Weekes Educational Scholarship ceremony yesterday morning, told the 14 recipients that the playing field was level and all of them were “beautiful flowers of God’s creation”.
“Whether you go to Queen’s College, Ellerslie or Coleridge &?Parry, you are made of gold,” he told an audience at Almond Bay Resort, Christ Church.
“Don’t impose any limitations on yourself. Exploit all of the opportunities that are available to you. We have to let the gold in all of our people shine.”
The scholarship programme is facilitated by St Michael North-West Member of Parliament Chris Sinckler. It rewards students from the area who have excelled in the Common Entrance Exam. (MK)
