Montserrat Secondary School hosts Commonwealth Day festivities
The students at the Montserrat Secondary School on Monday presented their annual celebrations for Commonwealth Day.
The highlight of this was in keeping with the theme “Opportunity Through Enterprise,” where the Student Leadership Team launched their new business initiative called MSS DigPro. MSS DigiPro is a student managed media house that aims to celebrate and market local businesses through the use of ICT and Social Media.
The group showcased the new television promo for the Bank of Montserrat and MS Osborne, their first clients. Representatives of both companies were on hand to receive copies of the new TV ads and the accepted thanks for choosing to support the new venture.
Montserrat’s Minister of Education Colin Riley said in his greetings that he is always excited to come to the school and see the new developments. He noted the MSS was much better than the one he went to as a student and he added that the future for the school and the students leaving the school was very bright.
He commended the students behind MSS DigiPro and said he was going to be throwing some business their way.
Throughout the morning celebration, the MSS choir and students from the Form two music class performed under the direction of teacher Rebecca Chalmers. The four students vying for president of the Student Council also gave short speeches to encourage their classmates to vote.
Following the ceremony, visitors were able to view the many IT presentations developed by students to highlight activities at the school since the school year began.
