Students told use failures to become stronger

July 8, 2023

The members of the 2023 graduating class of the Combermere School have been urged to draw on all that they have been taught during their time at school to navigate and succeed in the wider world.

The advice came during the school’s graduation ceremony in the Major Noot Hall.

In her remarks, Principal Julia Beckles said the graduation ceremony represents the climax of years of investment in time, talent and love by parents and guardians, as well as the Combermere community, in the lives of the graduating students.

In delivering the feature address, past student and noted artist and designer Taisha Carrington, imparted some words of wisdom.

The designer of Barbados’ 50th Anniversary Independence National Monument told the graduating class that they would need to have focus, persistence, determination and the ability to believe in themselves as they leave school life.

She also told the graduands that along the road of life, they should use their failures in the process of building character and becoming stronger to overcome the challenges they will face.

Meanwhile, in addition to their customary graduation certificates, some of the departing students received individual awards for their stellar achievements across the areas of academic and extra-curricular endeavours, including sports.

Among the proud parents at the graduation was the CBC’s very own videographer Patrick Murray, there for his daughter Jada.

Congratulations to all!
