  • 10th September 2018 - Third term kicks off with a special assembly, at Perseverance Secondary School!

    Minister Jeanne Simeon attended assembly at Perseverance Secondary School for the beginning of the third term this morning.

    The Minister was accompanied by Principal Secretary for Early Childhood, Primary and Secondary, Dr Odile de Comarmond and other Ministry officials.

    The assembly started with the National Anthem sung by the students and all those present, followed by a moment of reflection and prayers, the school’s song and subsequently the Minister’s address.

    In her address to the students, Minister expressed that all the message they need to hear are encapsulated in their school’s song. Just like the name of their school ‘Perseverance’, the students should take heed and understand that in order for them to achieve good results, they need to persevere.

    Furthermore, Minister Simeon expressed that there is a necessity for good conduct and respect, as both are very important attributes for success: respect for oneself, for parents, teachers, management and others. Additionally, students should also have respect for the infrastructure and resources they have at their disposal.

     Minister Simeon placed much emphasis on academic progress and good results. She asserted to the students “You need to make your parents proud”. To the Management, she congratulated them for their great work in the upkeep of the school’s ground and facilities.

    On a final note, she wished all the students and staff great success for the third term.

    Following Minister’s address, the Head teacher Ms Cecile Marcel reinforced the following to the students. “We need to set targets and ensure that we are working to the best of our ability”.

    A donation ceremony was also held during the assembly whereby the Head teacher received 2,225 books, altogether worth around SR 451,000.00. This significant gift was donated by Mr Wilson Nancy and Mrs Tanya Volschenk from Turnkey Solution (SEY) LTD and is greatly appreciated by the Ministry.

    Minister Simeon and her delegation later moved on to pay a visit to Perseverance Primary School.​

    We wish all the students a Happy final school term and much success in their studies!
