Although much advice is usually given at primary school graduations, the St Michael South Central Community Development Trust made sure students in that constituency received helpful tips to assist in their transition to secondary school.Last Friday the trust, under the patronage of Minister of Tourism and MP for St Michael South, Richard Sealy, treated the 52 children from the constituency who took the Common Entrance Examination to a seminar at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre, as well as lunch and a tour of Harrison’s Cave.During the seminar, Gilbert Carmichael, a teacher at Lester Vaughan Memorial School, reminded the students that what really mattered was not the school but what the individual student did.“All of you have been afforded an equal opportunity to do the best that you can. Take advantage of this opportunity, step up to the plate and exhibit a great level of maturity,” he said.
The children were also treated to a performance by Michael Mikey Mercer, who did I In Dat, but the highlight of his performance was the inspirational speech he gave before the song.Mercer urged the students to take education seriously and avoid doing anything simply to fit in.“Take advantage of your education now and do not take it for granted. Go to school and do your best and remember that education is very important regardless of what career you want in life,” he said.
