RHTYSC Teacher/Student Programme
The Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club (RHTY&SC) on Sunday last paid tribute to two of its outstanding members, Isabella Smartt and Bernadette King who died recently. Smart and King were Executive members of the Club served as role models and mentors to the cricketers under the club’s Mentors Programme.
RHTY&SC hosted the Port Mourant Secondary School Teacher and Student Programme in memory of Bernadette King and a similar programme at the Belvedere Primary School in memory of Isabella Smartt.
Club Secretary/CEO, Hilbert Foster, at the presentation ceremony hailed the contribution of Smartt and King who both died at the age of 66 after serving for a combined 30 years. The pair, Foster recalled, were hardworking and dedicated and their contributions over the years contributed to the club becoming the best in Guyana. The promotion of education and sports among youths were programmes close to the duo and as such it was decided to honour them via the educational programmes.
The administration of the two schools were mandated to select the Teacher and Student of the Term based on performance in the classroom, personal discipline, attendance, role model status and involvement in sports.
Meliesa Williams received the Teacher of the Term Award and Anita Jagweshar the Student of the Term Award at the PMSS while Devindra Ramdihal carried home the Belvedere Primary School Teacher of the Year and David Arjune the Student Award.
Each of the awardees received a wide array of gifts and was urged by Foster to always strive for excellence whilst maintaining the high standards they have set themselves.
