She spoke of Government¡¯s investment in the education sector and Berbice High School has been receiving its share of the pie.The shortcomings of the physical infrastructure would be addressed, she added. Soon, the institution¡¯s Information Technology programme would be boosted with the donation of 35 computers. These are made possible by a donor agency through NCERD.

Bhajan emphasised that those who overcome obstacles are stronger and perseverance is the hallmark of the Berbice High School.Berbice High School was conferred with a Grade A status based on Criterion Reference.

Surveys have shown that each child is born with the potential to excel in his own way, be it academically or vocationally.She stressed that the expectation of parents weighs heavily on the child¡¯s motivation and ultimate performance; hence those who do not believe in their children are doing them a great injustice.She challenged the Graduating Class of 2009 to share their knowledge and enter the world with the hunger to advance their scholastic accomplishment.Surihya Sabsook in her farewell oration looked back at her years spent, saying that during the First Form she obeyed every command of the rules. By the Second Form she succeeded in bending the rules but not breaking them. By the third year hormones began racing at the speed of light for some and budding romances took off. By the time they got to the Fourth Form she and her colleagues began to understand the importance of what was being taught and many grabbed the bull by the horns and buckled down.Her years spent at Berbice High School were not all laughter and joy but punctuated with hard work and dedication. The top student called on her fellow graduates to reach higher as they embark on another leg in the journey of life.Former Head Teacher, Marva Baird, in delivering the charge cautioned the graduating class of 2009 to never be satisfied with what they have achieved now and become complacent.She said it is only another rung of the ladder of success they would have climbed, and being better qualified in this competitive world would serve them well. “You can be whatever you want to be just have faith in yourself and your goals.”|
