This year’s Education Week kick-started with students from public and private schools parading from Public School System to ICC. During the opening ceremony, Honorable President Dr. Hilda C. Heine expresses that this year’s motto speaks the truth: education is our right and our responsibility. She asks that students, parents, (local and national) government, leaders, and communities work together so that every child has quality education. By playing an active role in a child’s education, they see that education plays a vital role in their life. Throughout the week there were many various activities hosted by PSS. Below is the list of winners in the contest that took place.
