THE Carr Memorial Primary School held its 19th graduation last Friday to see off its biggest number of pass outs of 171 students.
Principal Nida Bland told the graduates to accept whatever came and never to give up for God had a plan for them.
She encouraged parents to never give up on their children.
“If they don’t make it, support them. Make sure they are in school,” Bland said.
One of the speakers, Andrew Solomon, the chairman of the school’s parents and citizens board, thanked the parents for their support and teachers for their commitment and dedication to the children.
Solomon said: “Teachers should be the highly paid public servants of this country as they are training leaders of this country.”
The school is an Adventist school with the theme “God with us for a better future”.
Pastor Cameron Wari, communications director for Central Papuan Conference of the Seventh-Day Aadventist Church, told the graduates that God would make their future bright if they made him the centre of their life.
He said: “When I see you, I see leaders of this country, I see businessmen and businesswomen.”
He challenged the students that there were two roads in life and it was up to them to make the decisions which road to travel.
“The government of this nation is upgrading the town and upgrading the prisons and law system, it is you who will make the decision of what you will become in the future,” Wari said.
