The District Administration booth was back for another year at the Layman E Scott Sr High School Careers Day which was held on 20 March and attracted students with varying interests. Staff from the District Commissioner’s Office, as well as the Customs, Immigration, and Computer Services Departments once again provided informative and memorable booths.
Each entity highlighted the roles and responsibilities of its department and officers and the displays included forms, instruments, paraphernalia and giveaways relating to the respective units.
This year a new “passport” was distributed to all who visited the District Administration booths, which encouraged the holder to visit all four departments and have their passport stamped by each one. Those who did so received a District Administration commemorative mug. Students also completed an optional brief questionnaire about District Administration and the Ministry of District Administration, Tourism and Transport to test their general knowledge.
Creating the most buzz, the Customs Department emphasised the importance of abiding by the law and informed students about illegal substances, associated paraphernalia and evidence. District Commissioner, Ernie Scott gave remarks on career opportunities at District Administration and encouraged the students to find their passion and make a career of it. He shared his ascension through government and the road he travelled to get there; one of hard work and dedication.
