The students were taken through their paces by Tutor Cleveland Rose.
Regional Chairman David Armogan in delivering the feature address stressed the need for Education and training. He started by saying that the activity is all about the 18 young people who have decided to make use of the opportunity given them to have a second chance in education and took the opportunity to upgrade themselves.
Mr Armogan congratulated the grandaunts and told them that it’s a commendable thing for them to make use of the opportunity being given to them to have a second chance at having an Education. He said that the programme mostly caters for persons who do not have a formal education and most of them may be school dropouts. He stressed that not because some of them might have dropped out of school it means that they cannot have a chance to acquire an education and uplift themselves.
He stated that a country’s Human Resource is important and any country must seek to invest in its Human Resources.
Touching on the topic, the Regional Chairman stated that Information Technology is very important in the world today. It is important for you to be computer literate, so that you can be able to survive and be marketable. He stated that almost everything today will depend on the computer. He mentioned facebook, twitter, to buy an Air line ticket, to go to the bank, (ATM), to top up for phone. Most of what you do today takes the computer into consideration and most information can be found on line on the internet.
He told the grandaunts that they have chosen the right path. He told them that education never stops and urged them to continue in their quest to educate themselves.
He told them that a lot is expected of them seeing that they have received some amount of training and education. “When you are trained, people will expect to see a lot of difference in your attitude, behaviour, deportment and generally in what you do.” He told them that, “To whom much is given much is expected.”
