“The GED is an internationally recognized high school equivalency test with a 70-year history. The test is aligned with current high school standards and consists of four content areas: Reasoning through Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Science and Social Studies.

“This pool of graduates has successfully achieved the rigorous standards of the new GED test which was first implemented in January 2014.

Donna Daniels, Director of the Adult Education School, commented: “In passing the new test, these students are better prepared for further education and placement in today’s workforce.

“They have achieved a higher level of performance and they are better equipped to meet 21st century standards in critical thinking, problem solving and verbal and written communication.

“Today’s graduation ceremony serves as a new beginning. Whether they continue their education locally or abroad, or enter the world of work, I hope they do so with knowledge, wisdom, character, integrity and a sense of humanity.”

Gerald Simons, Chairman of the Board of Directors, observed: “For nearly sixty years the Adult Education School has provided an alternative education for people in Bermuda who have not succeeded in traditional schools. The school is especially important to young men who, once again, make up the majority of the graduates.”
