Over twenty young ladies of the Convent High School participated in a final assembly which signaled the end of their secondary school education and preparation for the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) exams.
All Convent High Students gathered at the Roseau Cathedral, housed at the St. Gerard’s Hall on Friday 4 May 2018, for a special assembly for the senior students.
“It is often said that the end of one journey signals the beginning of another greater one,” Head Girl of the Convent High School, Allyna Bernard said at that assembly.
“Today, we end our high school career and look forward with great anticipation to our fast approaching future. We must keep in mind however, that journeys are rarely solo endeavours and that those who have aided us, are forever worthy of our gratitude,” Bernard added.
Bernard said now that they have officially completed their high school journey, now it is “time to get through CXC, and look towards the future – graduation”.
“Thank you for being the strong females that you are,” she said adding that “she who endures, conquers”.
In paraphrasing a quote from former U.S President, John F Kennedy, Bernard reminded the students to trust in God, give back to those who have helped them “and our futures will undoubtedly be awesome”.
Meanwhile Principal of the Convent High School, Isabella Prentice encouraged the exiting class to perform to the best of their ability.
“The challenge is before them; just go – they can do it. They’ve shown they have what it takes, it’s just now to prove to themselves that they really can do it and they will be successful,” Prentice stated.
