On October 3, 2013, Convent High School celebrated Teachers’ Appreciation day starting the day with a lively and meaningful assembly put together by the Convent High School Monitors and lead by Tiffany Johnson.

To start the assembly, the song “My heart will go on” by Celine Dion was sung followed by the Our Father, Hail Mary and a bible reading read by Kaymaya Bertrand and Tatiana Corbette which was complemented by a beautiful reflection read by Tiffany Johnson herself. Both the bible reading and reflection spoke about preaching thus reminding us of  the purpose of the celebration.

 Following this were bidding prayers by Tojya Vital, Joan Wood and Tia Green and as if putting the icing on the cake of prayer, Tojya Vital, Nakisa Severin and Delena Ragiste graced the ears of the student body with “Jesus Lamb of God” on their violins.  

To sprinkle the Teachers’ Appreciation day spirit into the assembly, every teacher, including Miss Anette Austrie, one of our former Vice Principals, was given a gift by our Head Girl, Kaele Benjamin.  The gifts were from the kind sponsorship of the students themselves as a means of showing their appreciation for the hard work and dedication of the teachers.  Special gifts were given to Miss Lloyd, Mrs. Emmanuel, Miss Austrie, Miss Lander (who introduced the Sign Language and the Speech Choral clubs into Convent High School), Mr McAulay and Mrs Dublin. The students’ cheers for each teacher showed how much they not only appreciate but love their teachers.

The assembly continued with a dedication to teachers in the form of a song which was written by Kerdelle Cuffy and Leanne Benjamin and sang by Tanica Frank. The song basically thanked the teachers for always being a helping hand in the lives of students.

Even after the assembly was over, the Teachers’ Appreciation Day Celebration still continued. The monitors put together snacks (stuffed eggs, brownies, sausage rolls and sandwiches along with drinks) for the teachers. The fun did not stop there! During the same period, Musical Chairs was played. The game was hosted by Kaele Benjamin and Nakisa Severin with music by Kellsie Joseph and Khanisha James and chairs provided by the students of 5B. The game was a competition between students and teachers (Miss Lloyd, Mrs. Emmanuel and Mr. Peter) and was greatly supported by the student body and teachers. In most games, only one person would win but in this time, two people claimed half of one chair therefore forcing the game to end in a tie. Mr Peter , however, was voted the winner by a wave of screaming students.
