The Dept. of Education held its Annual District Awards Ceremony 2014 at New Vision Ministries on Feb. 5 under the theme: “Excellence for all…Yes, We Say So!”
The Honourable Jerome Fitzgerald, Minister of Education, Science and Technology, said that when they visited Abaco a few weeks ago they were concerned about some structural issues at Abaco Central High School, and he wanted to ensure that they were addressed.
With a renewed sense of commitment to the children of the Abaco District in particular and by extension those of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, I greet you on the threshold of yet another exciting year; one that holds great promise for our children.
Minister of Education, Science and Technology, Jerome Fitzgerald, visited Abaco on July 12-13 to inspect the “physical plan of the government schools” across Abaco and was pleased with the general conditions of the schools here. Mr. Fitzgerald spoke of the need to focus more time on core subjects in schools “as we move forward to improve our educational system so that the students are not only prepared for the jobs that will come online but to be able to compete in the twenty-first century.”
