Teachers, you are the guiding lights in our lives, leading us toward knowledge and wisdom. Your tireless efforts, patience and love have a profound impact on us. Through education, we can change our lives and our communities. Every lesson you impart is a step toward a brighter future. Let us never underestimate the significance of the work teachers do, for you are sculptors of dreams. Teachers not only teach from textbooks but also from the heart. A teacher's heart is a wellspring of love and care that shapes us into better human beings. Today, let's honour the kindness and compassion that teachers show every day. Wishing all teachers a day filled with admiration and appreciation. May your dedication and passion continue to inspire. Happy Teachers Day. ๐Ÿ’ž

Celebrating our first people! Amerindian Heritage 2023


Celebrating Amerindian Heritage Month
The tribes...
WAI-WAIS: These skilled architects of indigenous dwelling were fittingly tasked with the construction of the landmark Umana Yana. Expert weavers and bead designers, the members of this tribe love to dress up with cotton clothing and beaded ornaments. Their hairstyles are also works of art and they are very sociable people. The Wai Wais occupy the extreme south of the Rupununi Savannah.

MACUSHIS: Richard Schomburg described this tribe as one of the most beautiful tribes of Guyana. The curare poison, which they blew, is used on the lips of their arrow and bow. This orderly tribe can be found in the Northern Rupununi Savannah.

PATOMONAS: This tribe can be found mainly in the Northern Pakaraima Mountains, as well as in the South Pakaramais and the Essequibo region. Kaieteur Falls was named after Old Kaie, who was a member of the Patamona tribe.

ARAWAKS: These coastal dwellers are skilled in fishing. They also plant cassava in abundance. This is their staple food, which is used to prepare many dishes and alcoholic drink called piwari.

CARIBS: The Caribbean was named in honour. This is a warlike tribe who called themselves โ€œKarinaโ€ and were feared and respected by more peaceful communities. Caribs have settled in the Barama and Pomeroon rivers, and on the coast of the North West district.The tribe cultivated cotton, which they spun into cloth with spindles and coloured with dyes from the barks and leaves of trees.

WAPISHANA: Described as the most adaptable travellers, this tribe is famous for its industry and trading skills. They are also expert trackers, as well as weavers of hammocks, canoe makers, hunters and farmers.

ARECUNAS: Originating from the Caron, a large tributary of the Orinoco, this tribe is located on the banks of the Kamarang river. In the olden days they grew cotton in commercial quantities, which they traded to the other tribes. Their weapon of choice was the blow-gun and they were experts in its manufacture.

AKAWAIOS: This warlike tribe travelled from village to village, carrying the news and trading other tribes. They also, love to use the blowpipe. Members of the tribe are located in the Upper Mazaruni area, on the Barama, Upper Pomeroon, Demerara Wenamu, and the Upper Cuyuni rivers.

WARRAUS: This tribe lives in the swamps and marshes of the North West District, in the low-lying areas of the Barima and Pomeroon rivers and their tributaries.


Amerindian Heritage Month is an annual observance that is held every September in Guyana in honour of Guyana's indigenous peoples. On 10 September 1995, Guyana's Prime Minister, Cheddi Jagan, officially designated September as Amerindian Heritage Month.

As we begin another academic year, those returning to school and on that academic journey it is time you work harder than you did last year. For those now joining the academic journey we must say it's not a playing ground only. Your dedication and hard work will determine where it ends. Today our team extends best wishes to all of you and mostly to our teachers who share their knowledge and take care of you all while at school. No amount of money can be enough for someone who shares their knowledge hence we salute those in the teaching profession.
Most importantly we urge you all to take god with you in everything you do. With those blessings, your journey will be smooth.
Again best wishes for a fabulous 2023 - 2024 academic year.

We are going to emancipate ourselves from mental slavery, for though others may free the body, none but ourselves can free the mind. Mind is our only ruler.


Eid-ul-Adha, also called the "Festival of Sacrifice," commemorates the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to God and it honours the concept of sacrifice and demonstrates devotion to God. Happy Eid Al Adha to all our Muslim Brothers and Sisters!

In preparation for World Environmental Day, The Altruists Youth Group today continue with their clean up my communities campaign. Members gathered and cleaned the road shoulders of Hibernia on the Essequibo Coast.
We encourage citizens to stop littering as this will add to the issue of pollution and contribute to a lot of health issues.

*Happy Labour Day!* As workers rally on this day in solidarity and in celebration of their invaluable contributions to national development, we take this opportunity to acknowledge and appreciate the hard work and dedication of workers in every field who build our nation and shape our future. Our society is built on the sweat and toil of the labour force. We also take a moment in remembrance of Hubert Nathaniel Critchlow who devoted his life to changing the harsh conditions under which men were forced to work in during the earlier years. We owe them a debt of gratitude for their tireless efforts in making our nation a better place. Hope everyone is having a great day of rest and rejuvenation!


May this Eid bring you peace, prosperity, and success in all your endeavors. Have a blessed Eid filled with happiness and joy.
