Education Minister Fayval Williams commends Fully Bright team
For many people, it was one of the high points when Education Minister of Jamaica, Fayval Williams, joined the Fully Bright team on their last leg before the Easter mid-term holidays. And, after she left the school, it was very obvious she is well-loved.
The action took place at August Town Primary School in St Andrew. The Minister commended Dr. McDonald and his team for going to several schools with such a meaningful programme.
“I would love to use this opportunity to say how much we appreciate the Minister’s presence as well as the teachers and students who are part of this historic moment. Minister Williams has thrown her support behind our initiative ever since she became aware of our objective, which is to make Jamaica a Fully Bright nation.”
These words came from Dr. Garth McDonald, architect of the Fully Bright initiative, which is beginning to change the attitude of students towards education.
By eight o’clock in the morning, students were in the schoolyard among teachers waiting for the Education Minister and her team.
She welcomed everyone citing the importance of education and the need for every student to be fully bright. She also implored parents to send students to school, even on Fridays. Dr. Mc Donald aka Shaka Pow, performed his Fully Bright song, while Fully Bright dancers, Wassdemm and Anna, showed the Minister their well-choreographed moves.
This, she executed with students who gave her Fully Bright scores. Students participated, rendering songs and competing in a friendly dance contest. They were rewarded with Fully Bright certificates.
