#Providenciales, February 22, 2019 – Turks and Caicos – The Year 2019 is The Year of the Boys at Clement Howell High School and on Wednesday the government senior high school held an all-day event catering to the gifts and talents of their over 180 male students.
“We are focusing on improving boys’ education so we are trying to do a number of activities that would empower the boys and we are trying to choose things that they are interested in, that grabs their talents and skills.”
Talents and Skills were in fine form too. Entertaining performances in song and dance, competitions including discus, art, dance arm wrestling and culinary and prizes including a $25 cash pot for the first five boys to arrive at school on Boys Day.
Principal of CHHS, Kadean Cunnningham, laughed as she explained that particular prize was so alluring that nearly 100 boys were at school by 6:30 a.m. and there were rumors that some boys may have slept on site.
“One of the things that shocked us, because we have never had it happen in the history of the school. When the security officers came here the school was packed with boys, boys who come at 9 o’clock and those times, they were here on time. We heard that some persons slept here from 4:30 a.m. but we don’t know how true that is…”
Yesterday, there were two presentations. Dr. Patrick Prince presented on the effects of alcohol and drugs on daily living and Javon Harvey, who gave a general presentation embracing the theme of the day.
“Living my best Life” was the theme for the Clement Howell High School Boys Day on February 20, 2019.
