The Department of Education, Region 5, Mahaica-Berbice Region, honoured Retired Educators yesterday (Thursday). This activity coincides with the celebration of World Teachers’ Day which is being observed today (Friday October 5).
The purpose was to show appreciation to those educators who have made significant contributions in the Mahaica-Berbice Region and would have retired during the period 2013- 2018.
According to the Department of Public Information (DPI), the Regional Education Officer (ag), Mrs. Sherry Grant-White, thanked the attendees for their services rendered and encouraged them to continue to render their services in their respective communities.
