To the theme, “Exceeding Limitations … Pursuing a Better Tomorrow," Education Minister the Hon. Jeffrey Lloyd during Friday's proceedings encouraged students to exercise humility, be grateful and strive to do their best.  “Always be humble,” he said. “Life is not about you. You are about life.

“I am not a drop in the ocean. I am the ocean in a drop. If it is to be, it must be up to me,” said Minister Lloyd.

He urged the students to use their gifts to serve, empower and upgrade others, and he presented awards to outstanding scholars.
