While President’s College was created as a school to nurture the best young minds,Cheap World Cup Jerseys 2018, another school to cater to the needs of students with cognitive challenges was also introduced.The School was the St Barnabas Special School which today accommodates a student population of just over 40 students.

And it certainly isn’t without some challenges, as the school is populated by students with physical and learning disabilities from age 12-18.“Some of them have deficiencies from birth and some have developed their disabilities over time,” said Daniels of her students yesterday.According to her, while the students can be considered of secondary level, “we don’t do the regular secondary school programme.

The school, according to her,Cheap Jerseys, offers 14 subject areas to students.Students are admitted at the Grade Seven level and graduate at Grade Nine.“When they come here we teach them so that they can reach to a stage where they can be re-integrated into the mainstream secondary school,” said the Principal, who revealed that some of the students are diverted to technical or craft-focused institutions such as the Guyana Industrial Training Centre, Burrowes School of Arts and Carnegie School of Home Economics.“We don’t just leave them if they don’t make it back into the mainstream school…and you can see here today they are doing powerful work because of what they learn here,” boasted Persaud yesterday.But credit is not only due to the efforts of teachers alone. According to Persaud, the school is supported by a vibrant Parent-Teacher Association which is headed by Ms. Claire Emanuel. Emanuel underscored yesterday that not only are the teachers at the institution talented, but they have the requisite patience to prepare the students in their care for the future. “The teachers are doing a great job,” she emphasized.The business community has also been showing love to the school.“Once we ask for help they give us,” said Persaud, as she spoke of contributions from the American Store, Home and Beyond, Household Plus, and Survival and Bounty Supermarkets, to help bring to fruition a raffle which was drawn yesterday.
