Exciting Start to Education Week
ZIZ News–11th September, 2013–Ministry Of Education Officials are pleased following what was a very unique welcoming event held at the Zion Moravian Church on Sunday September 8th in observance of education week 2013.
The education officials visited the church expecting to celebrate and give thanks for successes over the past year and were pleasantly surprised by what was in store. The call to worship was initiated with the familiar ringing of a school bell, while the announcer greeted the congregation with the familiar “good morning class” greeting followed by a request for a more upbeat response from the audience which he teasingly referred to as students.
An outstanding feature of the event was the praise and worship team; the Ministers and other persons involved in the service were all attired in school wear of some type. Other members of the congregation were dressed likewise.
Minister of Education and Information Hon. Nigel Carty brought brief greetings at the event. Delivering the Ministry of the word was Permanent Secretary Mrs. Ionie Liburd Willette.
One day prior, on the opening day of education week, Ministry officials participated in a fitness walk and social from Independence Square to Frigate Bay. Minister Carty says this type of activity is good for unity and educational development.
Canon Isaiah Phillip and Mrs. Phillip, two well-known educators enjoyed the walk as well.
Principal of the Tucker Clarke Primary School Mr. Sylvester Charles brought a bit of friendly competition to the event.
The week of activities continued on Monday with a round table discussion on building leaders for the future advancement of the federation.
The celebration continues today Wednesday with education pride day when educational institutions will be open to the general public.
Every night a program produced by the education media unit is aired on ZIZ Television as part of the activities.
