Ministry of Education, Guyana

“I believe intelligence indeed is the vehicle that would help to shape and fashion one’s character – a character that will embody a positive outlook for the future. Education should be the vehicle, that transforms one’s attitude and behaviour to be a good and productive citizen,” a former student of New Silvercity Secondary School and Member of Parliament, Jermaine Figueira said.
