First general assembly held at new school

During its first general assembly since opening last year, Clifton Hunter High School in Frank Sound last week recognized student leaders and introduced the new student council. 

Tanesa Richards was named head girl and David Forbes was named head boy.  

“The introduction of the prefect body brought much excitement as a large number of the students are also members of the student council,” a news release from the school said. “The students cheered with joy as each name was called.  

“The head boy and girl, along with their deputies, will be wearing a tie for the first time. Peer councilors also received a certificate and pin.” 

Among the guests were MLA Winston Connolly, Arthur Hunter (son of Clifton Hunter), Winnifred Sykes, Melony Bryan, PTA president Cindy Scotland, Lance Barnes, Simon Miller and Joan West from the National Drug Council. 

Pastors from the eastern districts, headed by Pastor Leslie Pinnock of the High Rock New Testament Church of God, held prayer sessions on the campus. 

Mr. Connolly told the student leaders that he had been a student leader at the Cayman Islands High School, and the day of his induction was one of importance in his life.  

He charged the student leaders to be “humble” and to constantly remind themselves that leadership is about knowing the people you lead.  

Mr. Hunter also made a short address to the assembly, saying he was honored to present the prefects with their pins.
