Mauritius’ Minister of Education, Human Resources, Tertiary Education and Scientific Research, Leela Devi Dookun-Luchoomun, addressed a reception organised by the ministry in honor of the Laureates of 2014 HSC Examinations at the Hennessy Park Hotel in Ebene.
Leela Devi hailed the laureates with words of encouragement and lauded their commitment to the pursuit of excellence.
The minister highlighted that the deans, faculty, supporting school staff and parents must sustain dedication to schools while making sure that all roadblocks to youth development are removed. Thus, whether laureates or not, the youth can aim for even greater heights in their quest for excellence and essential skill development.
The laureates were encouraged to develop a social conscience where young persons who have been blessed with a powerful cognitive faculty should be concerned about people around them who are disadvantaged. In this context, Leela Devi said, “Mull over your social responsibility in this war that has to be constantly and relentlessly fought against extreme poverty.”
In today’s era, employers must always be willing to pay top dollar, but only for those whom they reckon to be the most competent, the most creative, and the most innovative professionals. Here, it is necessary for the upcoming generation to successfully develop 21st Century entrepreneurial skills and competencies for increased work resilience and flexibility.
“Whether boys or girls, the country needs the best brains for its governance, and I am confident that some of them are burgeoning right in front of me at this very moment,” said Leela Devi.
She went on to encourage the youngsters to go ahead, embrace a career of their choice, and seize every opportunity to serve their country to the best of their ability.
The minister concluded on the note that the students must be ready to spread their wings on a global stage.
“If, by extension, you have the opportunity to serve as a citizen of the world, you should certainly have no hesitation whatsoever,” she advised.
