On Saturday, October 7, Layman E. Scott Snr. High School held its 2023 Graduation ceremony at the Aston Rutty Civic Centre under the theme, “Smooth Seas Never Made Skilled Sailors.”

A total of 27 students graduated, with 18 receiving honours after attaining a minimum of seven Level 2 passes, including mathematics and English.

Principal Mr. Devon Bowen expressed his pride in the graduates and their achievements: “When you started six years ago, you were ‘diamonds in the rough.’ Beautiful young people of high quality and value, but needing some work. It hasn’t always been easy, but you have all succeeded on your own terms and stepped up when needed.”

Acting Deputy Chief Officer Mr. Adrian Jones conveyed greetings on the Hon. Juliana O’Connor-Connolly’s behalf. He encouraged graduates to “Continue your quest for knowledge, embrace the world’s diversity, and be agents of constructive transformation.” Mr. Jones also presented several awards, including the certificates of achievement to each graduate, the Effort Award to Lillyanna Carter, and the Outstanding Prefect Award to outgoing head boy Jaheem Hayles.

The keynote speaker for the ceremony was Public Health Specialist and Layman Scott alumna Mrs. Danielle Ebanks. She offered the following advice to the graduates: “Go out and face the challenges of the world just like I and many others did. Do internships and volunteer work and gain that experience for eventual job applications. Seek certification opportunities and build your skills with any organization you can. Be aware of what you are passionate about. Whatever you decide to do, do it to the best of your ability.”

Congratulations to the Layman E. Scott Snr. High School Class of 2023!
