Black out for peace at Eltham High

Jamaica Gleaner - - YL: FEATURE - La­mando Shep­herd YOUTHLINK WRITER

ON NOVEM­BER 2, 2016, the sec­ond and fi­nal Black­Out4Peace power hour cam­paign took place at Eltham High School in St Cather­ine. Though the power hour is but a very small as­pect of the cam­paign, it re­ally em­pow­ered the stu­dents, and en­ter­tained and ed­u­cated them via var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties.

Elatham High’s power hour did not dif­fer much from that of Jonathan Grant’s. It started with de­vo­tion then en­ter­tain­ment from tal­ented stu­dents. There were also op­por­tu­ni­ties to in­ter­act with some of the or­ga­niz­ers, which was some­what spe­cial, see­ing that one am­ing them, Andrew Wil­liams, is a past stu­dent of Eltham High.

Guest speaker Donna Ray More­head re­ally got the stu­dents en­gaged in her pre­sen­ta­tion, due to her amaz­ing de­liv­ery style. Some even com­mented that “she come with her sci­ence tricks”. Hers was a truly unique way to put across the con­scious mes­sage that was be­ing pro­jected.

The power hour ended with Mr Wil­liams giv­ing a few words of en­cour­age­ment, in­clud­ing never give up on dreams, which was per­fect for the Black­Out4Peace ini­tia­tive.
