Four retired educators were honoured for their outstanding contributions at a function organized by the eight cricket teams of the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club (RHTYSC). The educators: Deserean Benjamin, Zalimoon Khan, Eulis Tasher and Dresma Moore provided a combined 150 years of committed service.

The event was being held for the second year in collaboration with the Berbice Bridge Company Inc. (BBCI) at the St. Francis Xavier Training Centre.

The former teachers each received a medal, plaque and a special gift for their outstanding contribution towards the development of education.

Secretary/Chief Execu-tive Officer of the RHTYSC, Hilbert Foster told the gathering that over the years the club “has placed special emphasis on the promotion of education and has been honouring numerous outstanding teachers.”

The awardees were selected by the RHTYSC and the teachers union in Berbice based on “years of services, discipline, attitude, classroom performances and relationship with students/peers.”

In his remarks, president of the Guyana Teachers Union Mark Lyte said the educational sector is on the rise because of the combined effort of everyone involved.
