Thirteen children along with teachers from all four Juvenile Correctional Centres were awarded for their performance in the 2019 CSEC Examinations.
The children were awarded for outstanding performance in seven subject areas at an Awards Banquet held at Curphey Place on November 19, 2019.
Minister of State in the Ministry of National the Hon. Rudyard Spencer commended the children and teachers on their noteworthy performance. “Today we recognize and acknowledge the hard work that you continue to put into transforming your lives and I must commend you for making use of the opportunities presented to you while in our care. To our teachers and other staff members, I say thank you for your continued dedication. You have moved children from the remedial stages to where they are passing CXCs and I must commend you for that.”
In Addition to the children, the Teachers, Probation Aftercare Officers, Doctors, Psychologist, and Case Workers who work with the children on a daily basis were also recognized for their contribution to the successful passes.
