C.A.R.E. To Recognise Graduating Students

June 17, 2014

On June 19, 2014 at the St. Paul A.M.E. Church, 16 students will be graduating by receiving their G.E.D., and students of C.A.R.E. will also receive prizes for their attendance during the school term.

A spokesperson said, “This year’s ceremony will highlight the success of 16-year-old students passing the G.E.D. before the school-leaving age of 18, with one student at the age of 17 receiving the second highest score in mathematics out of a total of 215 students who took the 2002 series of the GED for the last time at the Bermuda College in December 2013.

“It will be an exciting afternoon as the Vice Chairman of the Board, Mr. Roger Butterfield, will acknowledge the recipients of the scholarship awards presented to students who continue to show great academic potential. There will also be words of encouragement from Mr. Chris Crumpler, Executive Director of Team Street Safe.”

Neletha Butterfield, owner, director, and founder of the Learning Centre, said, “The alternative learning centre has made a difference in our young people because today we are dealing with teaching our students life skills in addition to their academics in order to receive a high school diploma.

“It must be remembered that the purpose of education is not to fill the minds of students with facts; it is to teach them to think, if that is possible, and always to think for themselves.”

The ceremony will begin at 12.30pm and C.A.R.E. Learning Centre invites the community to support this event highlighting the success of our young people and the positive roles that our young people and adults are achieving through continued education.”
