“As I constantly say “We are in trying times”. However, determined and prepared sailors reach their destination in success, no matter how rough the tides become. I know how rough our days are, I also know how determined and prepared our candidates and students are; and I surely know that together, and addressing issues one at a time, we shall sail through.
I also appreciate the good work of all the staff working in our various schools in the wake of COVID-19. They should continue the yeoman’s job; and state, society and posterity shall never forget them.”
