Teachers in action on Friday.
PHILIPSBURG–The Public Education Division organised a programme last week Friday to bring teachers together for a time of fun and fellowship. Their participation was made possible based by a Ministry of Education decision to close all seven public schools so that the teachers could take part in the programme.
The event started with a welcoming address by Public Education Division head Glenderlin Davis-Holiday, followed by acting Secretary General of Education Shermina Powell-Richardson who spoke on behalf of Minister of Education, Culture, Youth and Sport Jorien Wuite.
Richardson expressed her appreciation to the Public Education Division for making it possible to hold such an activity with the goal to bring the teachers together in a fun-filled environment to foster team spirit, especially after facing so many challenges for the past months.
Motivational speaker Apostle Alicia Liverpool, governing director of Reign Society Global, a recipient of many awards, a worshiper, an artist, an author and a community leader; centred her keynote address on the theme “Building your inner spirit as Teachers.”
“This investment in them would enable teachers to make a positive contribution to their students so that they in turn can withdraw positive results. Only by depositing positive concepts could a positive contribution be made to their students’ growth and comprehension of life,” she stated.
The programme was coordinated by public school physical education instructors and the Public Education Division music enhancement team. All present took part in a series of interactive games such as table games and building bridges games, musical performances and much more. There was a high level of excitement and it was evident that the objective of unity and team building was accomplished.
“I would like to thank all the teachers, school managers and caretakers for their contributions and involvements and wish them much strength as they embrace the rest of 2017-2018 school year,” said Public Education Division head Glenderlin Davis-Holiday.
