The virtual journey to SEA

As Covid-19 made its way into our country and sent our students home, we were forced to make the transition online. Quickly adjusting our sails at Nelson Street Boys’ RC, we were able to be up and running. With Secondary Entrance Assessment (SEA) 2021 in mind, we pressed forward onto a road we could not see where it would lead.

The journey seemed long, some days stressful but seeing the students’ dedication and willingness to learn gave motivation to continue. Almost two years of preparation ended on July 1, 2021.

The boys came out with their heads held high, fully masked, as they believed they have put in the work and with God, they were ready to do their best.

We give thanks to God for seeing us through this trying time. We give special thanks to the parents of these amazing boys.

To Mrs Frances Gervais-Heath, our school principal, a special thank you for journeying with us every step of the way, encouraging and assisting us in every way possible.

Appreciation must be shown to our school manager Fr Martin Sirju for his continued prayer and support and to Fr Mikhail Woodruffe O Carm for being a young male spiritual support for us.

Finally, as a class teacher of graduating class of 2021, I salute my boys! My future leaders! Tomorrow’s Trinidad and Tobago. Congratulations! I am proud of you! I pray God’s blessings upon each of your lives. Well done! You have completed one step of life’s big journey. —Shaquille Gregory Julian, Standard Five teacher
