GODDARD ENTERPRISES ENCOURAGES AND ASSISTS SCHOOL LEAVERS
Students of Class Four at St. Mary’s Primary School who are about to head to Secondary School recently got some valuable lessons, when members of the Goddard Enterprises team visited the school to share tips on the transition from Primary to Secondary level.
Rhonda Howell, Human Resource Manager of HIPAC Ltd and Michael Best, After Sales Manager of Courtesy Garage, in separate sessions with the children, gave valuable information and insight as to what to expect as they move into their new schools in September.
Ms. Howell of HIPAC suggested ways in which they can make new friends; advised them on various changes that are coming – including a greater volume of home work; and the need for good time management now that they are dealing with multiple teachers and subjects. She further told them of the value of extracurricular activities and encouraged them to nurture a love for reading as it is the basis of all learning.
In addition to the informative sessions, Goddard Enterprises also continued its tradition of awarding two students for excellent work ethic and positive attitude with the Goddard Scholarships 2014. Alisha Nash and Renaco Griffith were presented with their trophies at the recent graduation ceremony held at the New Testament Church of God. The two will also receive a cash contribution to assist in the purchase of their new uniforms and school supplies as they make the transition to Secondary School.
Goddard Enterprises adopted the St. Mary’s Primary School about 10 years ago as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme and continues to assist the school and its students in various areas.
