PSS Rewards Ceremony could become annual event

PSS students entertain audience at Rewards Ceremony.

The Portsmouth Secondary School (PSS) is hoping to make an annual event out of a rewards ceremony held recently for students.

Principal Lois Bristol expressed this desire when she addressed the ceremony, held at the R.B.D Cinema in Portsmouth on September 22, 2010.

A number of students from first to fifth form walked away with subject prizes in Mathematics, English, Integrated Science, Principles of Business, Accounts, Office Procedures, Reading, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Physical Education, Computer Science, Electronic Data Processing Management, Art, Technical Drawing, Electricity, and Plumbing.

Gold, Silver, and Bronze Awards were also distributed to the school’s top academic achievers. Juanita Corbette, a student of Form Three, and Form Five student Esther Hyacinth received the distinction of being the only students to meet the requirements for the Gold Academic Award.

The school also recognized students for leadership, school spirit, deportment, and exemplary behavior. A group of students were also recognized for their contribution to the school’s band.

Addressing the event, Supervisor of Secondary Schools Windith Henderson lauded the efforts of the school in recognizing deserving students, and congratulated the students on their achievements. Meanwhile, a long serving teacher at the school, Mrs. Velma Ambo, encouraged those who were not receiving awards to aim higher as there was room at the top for hard workers.

A feature address delivered by pastor and motivational speaker, Lester George, was also well-received by students, parents, teachers, and other guests at the event.

    Congratulation goes out also to the principle and staff of P.S.S for a job well done, we also have to big up the parents for withoout them it would not be possible so to them I suggest you continue to stand firm and make sure they do their home work and on a daily basis check with their teachers to see how they are doing in class.

Oh and i forgot to add their so called negative “news” about our school is no where close to the truth-unfounded.P .S.S. on the way to recovery

    I love the uniform but the principle need to add a tie. I think they deserve wearing a tie along with the crest.

    I am very proud of my old school. To all concerned keep up the good work and I am sure that this will encourage the students to reach up to higher heights. It will be a great incentive for the students to stay in school and reach for the goal that they expect to set for themsleves. I am proud of my almateur. PSS has the potential to strive to higher heights and other schools on the island will follow.
    Way to go PSS and to the Teachers and Administrators keep up the good work and continue to make Portsmouth proud.
