Cayman Academy students started off
the school year with extra motivation.
Students at the school, an
Adventist Institution of learning, had the opportunity to hear from motivational
speaker and Pastor John Scott of Toronto, Canada, whose visit was supported by
Cayman Travel Services.
Pastor Scott held motivational
sessions at the school from 6 to 10 September, encouraging the students to push
for their dreams and helping them realise that classroom studies are one of
many small steps toward achieving those dreams.
“Completion of homework, taking
time to study and hard work are all other pieces in the puzzle of reaching your
dream,” he said. Further, he encouraged
parents to be supportive of their children in their schoolwork.
He also encouraged the students to
keep God and prayer at the forefront of their learning, proposing that God is
the only one who will get them through in the end.
“We realise that we are in a time
where there is so much pressure on our children, so many negative forces, and
we have to fight hard to keep them in school and away from trouble,” said
Cayman Academy Principal Nelda Dracket.
“We therefore thought it a
wonderful idea to have someone come in and motivate the school at the beginning
of this new school year.”
