The South Camp Juvenile Correctional and Remand Centre Summer School 2019 ended on a high with an afternoon of creative arts and music performances from the girls at the Centre on August 27, 2019.
Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of National Security Ms. Dianne McIntosh encouraged the girls to find their passion and use it to achieve their dreams. ” I want all of you to find your passion. You must have the passion to dream because all your thoughts can become a reality.”
Ms. McIntosh also took the time to leave some very important words with the girls. ” I know young people like to give up but I encourage you to keep going no matter how hard it gets. Some days will be good, others not so good but it is important that you get up every day with the will to achieve your highest dream. Focus on your passion and keep going.”
Commissioner of Corrections Lt Col. (Retired) Gary Rowe implored the girls to keep their eyes on their vision. ” I encourage you to keep your eyes on your vision, ask yourself what do you want to become and enjoy the journey to achieving your goals. I believe you can all be powerful ladies in the landscape of Jamaica, so start the process and see it through to the end”.
The South Camp Juvenile Correctional and Remand Centre Summer School 2019 is a part of the Rehabilitation through Creative Arts and Recreation Programme and focuses on teaching life skills through arts and music.
