Earlier today, several teachers, family members and other well-wishers logged on to ZOOM to be a part of East End Primary School’s first virtual school-leaving ceremony and to bid farewell to thirteen students as they move on to high school.
“We all looked forward to coming together to acknowledge the successes of our exceptional year six students and to celebrate their educational journey,” said Principal, Allison Greaves. “I urge each child to continue to push, persevere and prevail as they transition into the next phase of their education”.
Nine students received trophies for excellence in core subjects. Ten students were awarded for their consistent effort, and another six students received certificates for their perfect attendance and participation in extracurricular activities.
In her address, Hon Julianna O’Connor-Connolly, Minister for Education, urged students to work hard. “This time has taught us that hard work and determination does pay off and if we successfully reach our goals in life that we are fearfully and wonderfully made, created equal and genetically coded to succeed,” she said.
The event also featured a keynote address from Ms Juana Amador. East End Primary School Class of 2008 graduate.
Dior Brandon, Yelena Johnson and Tamia McLean jointly delivered the vote of thanks.
The event will be broadcast on CIGTV at 6 PM tomorrow.
