INNSWOOD, St Catherine:
WHILE JAMAICA Day celebration at Innswood High School in St Catherine was rich with cultural items and traditional foods, the primary focus this year was on a different area.
"Today, we decided to have an open day for the school library, where we showcase the library, information literacy, so we mounted a display titled SHINE - Sustained Habits for Improved Necessary Educational Empowerment," explained Dacian Forrest-Gray, librarian.
She added: "We have recognised that our students are not so much information literate and they are not so keen on their educational goals, so we want them to SHINE, and we wanted to show them students who were shining, students who have achieved," said Forrest-Gray.
Hence, pictures of Jamaican stellar athletes, including Usain Bolt, Asafa Powell, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Veronica Campbell-Brown, were mounted to motivate the student population to strive for excellence.
A career corner also featured prominently in SHINE.
