The Opposition, A Partnership for National Unity and Alliance For Change (APNU+AFC), has extended congratulations to the students who were successful at the 2022 CAPE and CSEC examinations.
In a statement, the Opposition said they share the students’ happiness and excitement and applauded the teachers for their persistent and selfless efforts, without which many students would not have achieved this high level of success.
In apparent acknowledgment of rumblings by teachers of the conditions under which are working and the absence of increased pay, the Opposition said though the teachers’ services are not fully appreciated and compensated, they offer the promise that the day will soon come when a new and enlightened government will accord the teaching profession the requisite respect, resources, benefits, and remuneration it deserves.
Caregivers also came in for commendation. The “parents, guardians, and all those who would have contributed” to the children’s success “heartfelt thanks and praise” were extended to them, as well as acknowledgment for the “pride” the caregivers feel.
Turning attention to “those students who would have liked to have done better,” the APNU+AFC urges them not to undervalue themselves or let anyone make them feel unworthy.
“There is more to life than one examination and there are many among us who did well after underperforming at CSEC. Our country and the world are full of persons who have become successful in all types of careers because they backed themselves and were willing to keep focused on their objectives,” said the Opposition.
Children were further urged to use the results they received as a learning experience and persevere
