St. Maarten – Minister of Education, Culture, Youth and Sport Silveria Jacobs was a guest of Department of Public Education end of year breakfast and program last week. It was a morning of talent as students of various schools showcased their singing and dancing talent, while Teacher Atasha Paul-Esdaille rendered a moving rendition on behalf of the students to the teachers “Wind beneath my Wings”. Paul-Esdaille received a standing ovation.
There were raffles and awards won by many in attendance. Many were also honored for going above and beyond the call of duty such as Sam Maccow, Hyman and Jeffers.
The St. Maarten Vocational School was honored for the school that implemented the most structural changes, and showed improvement in discipline as well as other key areas. Teachers from each school were also awarded for perfect attendance.
“It proved to be a day of appreciation in the truest sense of the word,” Jacobs told the Department of Communication.
