Five inmates awarded GEDs
Five prison inmates have been awarded their GEDs in a ceremony held at the Co-Educational Facility.
Daymon Simmons, Dion Cholmondeley, Detré Ford, André Richardson and Mikiel Thomas all successfully completed the GED programme.
Mr Simmons also successfully completed the Department’s Violence Reduction Programme this year.
Wayne Caines, the Minister of National Security, told the graduates this week: “We must all recognise the power of redemption and the importance of moving forward in a positive light.
“To the service providers and Department of Corrections officers and personnel that made this GED programme possible. Your support and commitment was integral to the success of these men, and I offer you my sincere thanks and appreciation”
Classes were taught with a combination of external tutors and the department’s education staff.
The Department offers both the GED and Violence Reduction Programme to help the rehabilitation and eventual reintegration of inmates back into society.
