    Bermuda’s youth have embraced the lessons taught from books like “The Little Train That Could” and are starting to realize that it does not matter where you come from, but with hard, work, skill and dedication you can move mountains!

    Thanks to those like Mr. Best, Mr. Goater and Wells that made their mark on Football. Thanks to Ms. Perozzi, Mr. Butterfield and Ms. Duffy that beat the best to be the best. Thanks to Mr. Bromby , Mr. Levrock and Mr. Rawlins for making the competition pay attention. there are obviously many more examples. All of you have given hope to the rest of the small fish living in the big pond.

    Our Athletes, business people, and children are starting to realize that nothing worthwhile comes easy. If you remain focused. work hard and don’t whine when things don’t go your way….eventually you will reach the top of the mountain. thanks guys for being two more positive examples.
