DJPEMSS students urged to resist abuse

Tue Oct 8, 2013

The students of the Dr J.P. Eustace Memorial Secondary School (DJPEMSS) have been urged to resist the abuse and discomfort they are forced to endure while riding many of the minivans to and from school.{{more}}

Joel Jack, coordinator of the Secondary School Bible Quiz (SSBQ), made this plea while addressing the students of the school yesterday.

He pointed out that the excessive noise and sometimes unwholesome lyrics are a hindrance to their proper functioning in school. He explained that not only does the exposure affect their minds, but it is also physical abuse, as their hearing capacities are being diminished. The students responded with loud applause when Jack told them to ask the drivers and conductors to turn down the “music”.

Jack presented the SSBQ prize for September 2013 to Keddisha Williams. This was the second time that a student of the school had won, the first being Skyla Neverson in October 2010.
