Make Good Use of Your Time in High School…PM Urges GSAT Students


Eleven children of the staff of the Office of the Prime Minister and the Cabinet Office were personally congratulated by Prime Minister the Hon. Bruce Golding, who encouraged them to make good use of the secondary school places they got by passing the GSAT examinations. "Time will go by faster than you think. I appeal to you to work hard, I want you to make good use of it," he told the children and their parents during a short ceremony at the OPM on Friday afternoon (Aug 21).

Using World Record holder in the 100 metres and 200 metres Usain Bolt as an example of an ordinary Jamaican child who worked hard to achieve his dreams, Mr. Golding said, "Your lives, your potential and what you can become, have no limit. You have a vast horizon in front of you. Maybe you will become one of the most effective brain surgeons that Jamaica has ever produced. Maybe you will become one of the best engineers. You can become anything that you want to become. God is such a marvellous creator. That little brain that you took to be successful in GSAT, can do virtually anything that you want. But it needs to be trained, it needs to be exercised, it needs to be worked, it needs to be put to be good use."
