The programme was outlined by the principal, Andrew Blake, who also gave the welcome at the July 6 graduation ceremony.

The keynote speaker, Pastor-in-training, Jason James, noted that children of today were so knowledgeable in so many technical and other areas of learning, that it was difficult to find what they should be told. “The only thing I believe that you can tell them or show them is the word of God,” he stated. I firmly believe in Proverbs chapter 22 verse 6: ‘Train up a child in the way in which he or she may go and when they are old, they will not depart from it.”

The Pastor-in-training encouraged the graduating students to let their minds remain focused on God; to remember their spiritual and educational training at Central Christian School and to be committed as they enter a coming new school environment.

There is the assumption that parents and guardians are all excited about their children while at pre-school or primary school, but lose interest when the youngsters go to secondary school.Koyeisha Richardson, the Valedictorian at the Central Christian School, addressed that situation in the following manner:

My first words go to parents: continue to have us your children when we get to secondary school; continue to talk to us, we need it; don’t give us everything we say we want like money every day to buy lunch; encourage us in the things that are right; correct us when we are wrong; remember the Bible places a responsibility on you to train us right.”

To her peers, she gave this advice: “Choose your friends carefully [as] we become like who we hang around [with]; concentrate on your school work – your talent is God’s gift to you and what you do with it, is your gift back to God; choose right; Central Christian School taught us well; let us hold fast to the truth we have learnt.”
