GREAT DAY OUT FOR ALL AT CHOICES CAREER & EDUCATION EXPO - KINGSTON LEG






They sang; they danced; performed; listened keenly and drank in of all the fine information and opportunities presented before them.
The near 1500 students, counsellors, teachers, parents and others who attended the Kingston leg of the 2010 CHOICES Career & Education Expo at UTECH's Auditorium left well pleased with what had been presented to them during the course of a full 9a.m. - 5p.m. day. They had their fill of career counselling, talks, presentations and entertainment.
With the official opening with its formal speeches and wise words of advice completed, they were ready to begin. The presentations on stage were well received and ran smoothly in between song and dance performances by the International Youth Fellowship (IYF); Dominique Hemmings, 6th former at Kingston College on the sax, The CHOICES Song Contest and The closing show featuring a fashion fiesta by KAJU and a spell-binding performance by Jamaica's own fine and fabulous Nickiesha Barnes. Emcee on Stage, Craig Mc Nally, kept the pace lively and the audience happy.
Teachers and counsellors were enthralled by the special talk presented by Dr. Herbert Gayle, sociologist and anthropologist, on the subject "Whither Our Boys" while the boys benefitted from "Boys To Men" a talk specifically to help them to get on track and stay there which was conducted by Mr. Kayson Jones.
In attendance were schools from as far away as Montego Bay, Trelawny and Hanover. Some students got up as early as 3a.m. to make sure they did not miss their transport to the capital.
Amongst the rewards for those making extra effort to participate in the stage programme were prizes such as gift baskets from Kirk Distributors, York Pharmacy, Maggi and Soft Sheen; entry passes to Palace Multiplex, Rainforest, Suncoast Adventure Park, Bob Marley Museum and Cool Runnings Water Park; dinners, lunches, munchies and brunches at the Jamaica Pegasus, TGI Friday, Hilton Kingston, Pier One and Morgan's Harbour Hotel; glamour shots at Bryan's Studios; jewellery from Beyond Jewellery; gift vouchers from Extras, Megamart and Western Sports and lots of give-aways from CHOICES, Grace Beverages, Honey Bun, St. Mary's Banana Chips, Pepsi, PMD Beverages and more. The Hot Dog Man kept everyone fed and watered with delicious American style hot dog combos including every condiment on top and lemonade.
Next stop for CHOICES Career & Education Expo in this 10th anniversary year will be Mandeville. Watch out for more updates.
