Ministry of Education, Guyana

It was a joyous day on Saturday for 18-year-old Joylyn Conway. She received her Diploma in Chemistry at the 15th Convocation of the University of Guyana’s (UG), Tain Campus, Region Six, even as she celebrated her birthday.

Conway said, “At first it was rough because of transitioning from high school and having stayed home for three months, kind of lost touch with school work. The grades I attained in my first semester, I was not happy, so I was determined that I have to work and I know what I wanted. I wanted to make my parents proud and myself proud as well.”news 20161121 1

– urges nation’s top performers to stand up for honesty and integrity

Although hard-work, dedication and sacrifice are all key factors to achieving success, embracing this success should never be without recognising those who helped in one way or another. This view was recently highlighted by Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo when he addressed a gathering of education stakeholders at the National Cultural Centre recently. The occasion was the Ministry of Education’s 20th hosting of its National Awards ceremony.news 20161026 4
Speaking to the awardees, the majority of whom were the top performers of primary and secondary level examinations, the Prime Minister urged that they reflect on the support they gained from others along the way.
Parents, according to Nagamootoo, like their children who excelled had to make sacrifices and at times might have been faced with hard choices. “ Whether to put more food on the table rather than provide you the book you asked for or buy a pair of shoes or something that would have helped you to get to school or make your life in class more comfortable, are some of those choices” he considered.
