Apr 10, 2016 News Comments Off on Education Minister commends Police “A” Division for successful Career Day
The Guyana Police Force “A” Division (Georgetown/East Bank Demerara) held its inaugural Career Day for Police Youth Groups, yesterday, at the Police Sports Club Ground, Eve Leary.
Close to 1200 children from 27 seven Youth Clubs across the Police Divisions participated in the event, which was held under the theme “Transforming the Mind, Developing the Nation through Motivation and Inspiration”.
It was declared open by Minister of Education Dr. Rupert Roopnaraine.
In his address the Minister commended the efforts of the Guyana Police Force, more specifically the Divisional Commander, Officers and ranks of “A” Division and other stakeholders, for staging the event and offered his congratulations on the choice of the Theme, the elements of which he said strike at the core of education in Guyana.
Dr. Roopnaraine was impressed with the emphasis placed on local activities and local products that were on display at the exhibition booths.
He expressed the view that they will generate high interest in the youths.
The Education Minister also noted that many of the children attending the Career Fair were at an important stage of their lives where decisions will influence the kind of persons they become.
He urged that they pay close attention to their parents, teachers and those who give them guidance in order that they may be able to make a contribution towards the building of Guyana.
Addressing the occasion was Commissioner of Police, Seelall Persaud, who also complimented “A” Division for making the Career Day a reality and posited that the event had three important values.
His remarks were aimed at the children of the Youth Clubs, many of whom are completing Secondary Education and may be entering the labour force and therefore need to seize the opportunity to explore the diversity of the work environment.
Secondly, to the exhibitors, who have the opportunity to recruit labour; and thirdly to the Guyana Police Force itself which has transformed over the years from a para-military organisation into a service-oriented and social problem solving Police Force.
A number of agencies established exhibition booths at the Career Fair through which personnel interacted with the youths with the aim of guiding them towards available career opportunities.
These included the Guyana Police Force, the Guyana Defence Force, the Guyana Fire Service, the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Agriculture, the Guyana School of Agriculture, the Guyana National Newspapers Limited, the Guyana Rice Development Board, University of Guyana Health Sciences Department, E R Burrowes School of Art, Guyana Responsible Parenthood Association, Museum of African Heritage, Modfin Beauty School, the National Communications Network, the President Youth Award Republic of Guyana, S&S Fruit Services, and the National Agricultural Research Institute.
The youths also participated in cultural performances that included songs, dances, a skit, physical display and a storyline.
Musical entertainment was provided by the Police Steel Band. Other activities included horse riding and trampoline.
