Five students completed their secondary education today when they graduated from the Centre for the Deaf in Oakes Field. On hand was the minister of Education Jeff Lloyd and Social Services and Urban Development minister Frankie Campbell. Min. Lloyd told the quintet, all of whom are headed to The Bahamas Technical & Vocational Institute that, “you can do anything you put your mind to. The world is your oyster and you are capable of going everywhere and anywhere.” Minister Campbell told them that, “the country is relying on you to push the doors wider to allow more persons like you in to also achieve their dreams.”
Jevonny Allen earned the Principal’s award for having the highest grade point average and deemed to have the most outstanding character. There were 29 students enrolled this past school year. Principal is Mrs. Sonja Rolle.
