The Department of Education has expressed thanks to encouraging the students to set the stage for greatness by celebrating their successes through the sponsorship of the ceremony.

Mrs Chanelle Petty Barrett, Permanent Secretary, Education, congratulated the students on behalf of the Ministry and Department. Among other things, she said it appeared that a lot of attention was being given to the negative behaviour of a minority of youth. Rather, there was a need to focus on the positive things that many other youth and to recognise and award those striving to be the best they could be.
