For the second consecutive year The Botswana Medical Aid Society (Bomaid), sponsored Gosemama’s Junior Secondary School prize giving ceremony. The ceremony was held on Friday the 5th October 2018 at Goo-Tau and it was officiated by Permanent Secretary to the President, Mr. Carter Morupisi.
The gesture to sponsor is in appreciation of the school effort to excel across all education spectrum. It is worth noting that, amongst others, Bomaid strives to support entities that live up to values similar to their own. In this case it is ‘excellence’, which is a virtue that the school has embraced. The sponsorship is also an effort by Bomaid to carry out its mandate of being a caring corporate citizen by supporting one of the nation’s core pillars, ‘an educated and informed nation’.
During her opening remarks, the Head of School of Gosemama JSS Mrs Tebogo Mack, welcomed the guests and gave an overview of the school’s good performance in academics, arts and sports. She further appealed to individuals and organisations to partner with their school to encourage and support their efforts in raising funds for school developments, academic performance and commended Bomaid and Mr Morupisi for the effort.
In his address, Mr. Carter Morupisi encouraged students to focus on their studies and excel, noting that he too came from humble beginnings and had to work his way up to be where he is today. He congratulated the students who have excelled in their vocations and encouraged those challenged to keep on trying and working hard to achieve desired results.
In closing, he commended the School Head and the teachers for the holistic approach in ensuring that students are encouraged to do well in all facets of education. He thanked the sponsors for supporting government efforts, notably Bomaid for the two years it has stood by the school in this honourable event.
