Teachers in the New Amsterdam/Canje School District held their Annual Day of
Sports yesterday at the All Saints’ Primary School Ground in New Amsterdam. The event was declared opened by Deputy Regional Executive Officer (DREO) of Region Six, Imran Ally.
The event started with a grand march of the various schools from Main and Church Streets, proceeding towards the ground. Schools that participated included Vryman’s Erven Secondary, New Amsterdam Multilateral, Tutorial Academy Secondary, Canje Secondary, Sisters Primary, Edinburgh Primary, Berbice High, Berbice Educational Institute, Rose Hall Estate Primary, among others.
Ally urged teachers to go to the classrooms with a ‘Happiness Advantage’. He spoke at length about the theory and how practising it can be a formula for success for teachers. It is about being happy before going to work and going into the classroom, he said.
The official urged the teachers to exhibit a level of consistency in carrying out their important work as teachers, “and that level of consistency will be a part of one of the variables that defines (you).”
He added that educators must be able to find within themselves that strength whereby they can be happy even before they enter the classrooms.
“I know that our challenges are great…and I say to you that we find that level of comfort with ourselves…we are motivated before we get to the classroom and that level of motivation is what is going to help us to cultivate a brain and that will make us more efficient, creative and resilient and more productive.”
Ally then declared the event open. He was supported by the coordinator, veteran educator, Ms. Ruth Jaundoo, who is attached to the Region Six Department of Education. Among the events yesterday were cricket, sprints, relays and football. (Leon Suseran)
