“It’s a collective team effort, this project here is not our first rodeo this is to be exact our fourteenth and it was all achieved under twelve years, we are all passionate [about] what we do and most importantly we do it with sincerity. This project was made possible after we made a visit here”, he underscored.
While disclosing that the project was completed in the space of three months, Sobhraj further grasped the opportunity to admonish those present to set high standards with regards to the provision of education for future generations, so that more can be achieved personally and as a nation.
“We must always have the drive for educating our people as parents, you want to make your children and grandchildren be better than you, whatever you’ve done. If they do the same as you, It means you as a parent has failed, it means you’re not raising the bar. We have to keep raising the bar higher” he urged.
Meanwhile, Mayor of Georgetown, Ubraj Narine in his brief remarks lauded the school’s accomplishments as he urged students to take advantage of the opportunities offered while pursuing studies diligently.
“Education is the key to success, it is the greatest asset you could ever achieve in life, I urge you as youths to take your education for when one is young your mind is like a sponge. It’s capable of absorbing everything so use the time you have to absorb and observe…today’s investment can be tomorrow’s foundation, be wise and think twice, make a decision with an impact.” Narine posited.
The school’s computer centre is expected to serve both students and the wider society in equipping them with skills to thrive in a rapidly changing ICT professional environment. The non-profit institution is now expanded to offer varying academic services while at the same time instilling the Hindu culture and religion.
Among the persons present at the launch were Principal of the institution, Yogeshwar Mathoo; former Commissioner of Police, Seelal Persaud and Governor of the Bank of Guyana, Dr Gobind Ganga, among other dignitaries.
