Pupils urged to aspire to greatness
PUPILS OF St John Primary School were given a role model to aspire to in Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave.
Principal Ometa Hinds said Sir Elliott strove to achieve his position in accordance with the school’s motto: Strive Ever For The Best and encouraged the students to do the same.
“We know you would not have achieved without striving for the best. You are an example of how education can propel you into greatness, so I encourage you, the students, to press on to win.
“I’m sure it would please his heart if you aspire to greatness due to his visit today . . . . Touching the nation’s children is touching the future,” she said.
Sir Elliott praised the achievements of the students, both in and out the classroom, but advised them not to sit on their laurels and to instead adhere to their school’s motto.
The visit featured performances from the students – from songs and poetry to an acrostic. (CA)
