68 students of the Castle Bruce Secondary School Bids Farewell
68 students of the Castle Bruce Secondary School (CBSS) bid farewell to their Alma mater on Friday June 28th, signalling the end of their High School education.
Principal of the CBSS, Mrs. Octavia Alfred, stated although some of the students were doubtful on reaching this point of their journey, they must thank God that they persevered and successfully completed High School.
Mr. Claudius Sandford, a former teacher, delivered the feature address and advised the students to always reflect on the sacrifices they and their families have made, and to use the energy of gratitude to thrust themselves forward.
“You can reflect on your teachers, some of them were the rock you leaned on, the constant voice to keep going and never give up.” “They took time to explain concepts to you, discipline you and instill character in you, this is something to ponder upon,” he said.
He also advised the students to keep faith in God, as they keep striving to accomplish their goals.
Valedictorian of the Castle Bruce Secondary School, Ms. Nyra Georg, during her valedictory address noted the difference between the impossible, lies in a person’s determination to try.
“We need to always surround ourselves with positive optimistic people who will encourage us to set attainable goals and accomplish them.”
“Fellow graduates, whatever our dream or vision we can accomplish it once we are determined, and we must leave this school with our heads held high, with goals in mind to make our mark as proud graduates, making positive contributions in our communities and nation.”
The students were advised to follow their school’s motto which reads; ‘Excellence is not an act but a habit. Radiate that vision.’
