Reverend Patricia Sheeratan-Bisnauth of the Guyana Presbyterian Church, who is also Head of the Guyana Responsible Parenthood Association (GRPA),NFL Jerseys China Cheap, recently intimated her support for reviewing of Christian prayers inReverend Patricia Sheeratan-Bisnauth of the Guyana Presbyterian Church.public schools.Ms. Bisnauth expressed her surprise that Christian prayers are still the official prayers in most public schools across the country, even as Guyana has been acknowledged as a pluralistic society since the 1970s. It was assumed that school prayers would reflect this plurality.Prayers, she stated,Bayern Munich Jerseys, is a good thing but one needs to acknowledge that there are other religions who may not feel comfortable being subjected to prayers which do not reflect their beliefs. She stated that the move by the Education Minister is a good one. There is a pressing need to acknowledge other religions such as Hinduism, Islam and Rastafarianism amongst others within the public school system.“I personally think it’s a good move by (Minister Dr. Rupert Roopnaraine) as it will aid in respect for the different religions. It should never be about competitions to see whose god is better, but it should be about encouraging respect between these different belief systems. Hopefully, people will soon see how good this move is.”President of the Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha,Wholesale Jerseys, Dr. Vindhya Persaud, has also expressed her support for the reviewing of Christian prayers within public schools.Persaud stated that sections of her organization had brought up the issue of having universal prayers in public schools with previous Minister of Education,China Jerseys Wholesale, Priya Manickchand. She recalled that while promises were made, no follow up action was taken by the Ministry.Persaud opined that exposing children of different religions to one specific religious prayer will most likely foster negative feelings towards other religions.“It has always been a belief of mine that we should have universal prayers within our schools,Aaron Ramsey Arsenal Jersey UK,” said Persaud. “By using such a prayer, it promotes tolerance and respect for each other’s cultures, especially in a country such as ours.”She said that she would like to see the Minister of Education, Dr. Rupert Roopnaraine act on his promise quickly. She suggested, however,Jerseys From China, that before he begins to make such changes within the school system he should first hold meetings with various religious bodies and organizations.Despite the various religions existing within Guyana’s society and the country’s position as a secular state, most public schools across Guyana see students reciting Christian prayers despite their religious affiliation.According to the Constitution of Guyana, the practice of having Christian prayers in public schools across the country is in contravention of laws set out in relation to the separation of church and state.“If that’s the practice that is going on in these public schools,” the Minister stated, “it is not a practice we condone. We are a multi-religious country and we have to realize that we have multi-religious children so that whatever prayer is used in schools should not exclude any of the religions.”Roopnaraine said that the Ministry will soon review the practice which could possibly be detrimental to social cohesion. He revealed that he will soon start disseminating information countrywide to inform teachers of the need of having interdenominational prayers in the nation’s schools.

– urges nation’s top performers to stand up for honesty and integrityAlthough hard-work, dedication and sacrifice are all key factors to achieving success, embracing this success should never be without recognising those who helped in one way or another. This view was recently highlighted by Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo when he addressed a gathering of education stakeholders at the National Cultural Centre recently.? The occasion was the Ministry of Education’s 20th hosting of its National Awards ceremony.Speaking to the awardees, the majority of whom were the top performers of primary and secondary level examinations,Nike Schuhe Neu Herren, the Prime Minister urged that they reflect on the support they gained from others along the way.Parents, according to Nagamootoo, like their children who excelled had to make sacrifices and at times might have been faced with hard choices. “ Whether to put more food on the table rather than provide you the book you asked for or buy a pair of shoes or something that would have helped you to get to school or make your life in class more comfortable, are some of those choices” he considered.Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo interacts with some top performers.Added to this,China Football Jerseys Cheap, he speculated that some parents might have been forced to take time off from activities that were personal and valuable to their lives to attend a Parent/Teacher Association meeting, to meet with teachers and better understand how their children were performing. Essentially,Nike Schuhe Neu Damen, he noted, many parents have rendered unadulterated devotion to their children to ensure that they were well cared for thereby,Adidas Basketball Shoes Sale, allowing them to “emerge from the examination rooms as victors, as winners…triumphant.”But embracing the outstanding achievement should not be without first appreciating the role that educators have played too,Basketball Shoes Clearance Sale, the Prime Minister reminded.“Remember the contribution towards your education by your teachers who are dedicated to the task of which they are paid, who are committed to the work they have chosen, and who gave and imparted from themselves the knowledge they accumulated over the years,” Nagamootoo asserted.“In imparting their knowledge they are making you twice or thrice the person as strong as they have been,” he added. He pointed out that the ability to delve into books on a personal level is also always instrumental in achieving academic success.He called upon the awardees to reflect on their own sacrifices and the hard work such as the extra hours put into studying, reading and revising in preparation for the examinations that helped them to excel.Education is a tool that will undoubtedly serve to exude them with ambition, the Prime Minister shared his conviction that “Guyana can be a shining light in the world; you are the light,” the Prime Minister said.He recounted a call made by Head of State, David Granger,Cheap NFL Gear,? that “all students in Guyana should become ‘A’ students.”But achieving this will require that a system be in place that understands the problems in education that affect the performance of the nation’s children who underperform.However, even with the targeted success, Prime Minister Nagamootoo asserted that “there is nothing more worthy of recognition than honesty and integrity.”? He urged the awardees, “If you choose to pursue the path of work or the path of academia you must stand up for some things you believe in, some principles that are lofty and even if you are the only one standing, you must stand for principles that will touch and influence not only your life but others around you.”He dissuaded the awardees from delving into unwholesome activities. “No State, no nation, no people could invest in the path that leads to the pointing of iron doors…No nation would invest in their brightest minds and talented children if all it means in the end, is that they choose what they consider to be an easy path to life, the path that would lead you to earn a livelihood from other people’s sweats and accumulation; there is also the path that lead you not to the broad highway of a new glorified future but a path that lead you to prisons, hard labour and confinement and to the death of your dreams.”
