Minister praises graduating classes of 2021
The Education Minister has praised the graduating classes of 2021, congratulating them on letting “nothing get in your way, not even the unpredictability of the times you faced”.
In a statement about the graduating classes of the Bermuda Public School System (BPSS), Diallo Rabain said: “To all of our 2021 graduating classes, we praise your achievements. Undoubtedly, no other graduating year group has been through as much as you have.”
“You have persevered through two academic years that have been interrupted by the pandemic yet, you have succeeded in meeting your goals. You knew and appreciated the importance of your education and let nothing get in your way, not even the unpredictability of the times you faced.”
Minister Rabain added: “Despite the times they faced, our BPSS students accomplished amazing feats. They are to be commended for finding the strength within themselves and pushing through even when they did not feel like they could.”
“We know through research, evidence and anecdotal stories that no student reaches this milestone alone. The Ministry and Department of Education staff; school boards; principals; teachers; support staff; parents and guardians; students; volunteers; and community partners all helped our students reach this milestone.
“Whether it be knowledge, encouraging words, donations, time or motivating incentives, our public school students have a village supporting them. To the village that has supported the graduating classes of 2021, thank you and their achievements are your achievements as well.
“To all of our Bermuda Public School System students, your country is proud of you, and we encourage you to continue to push forward towards your dreams and goals.”
