Businessman Donovan Betancourt, the chairman of school affairs at Dinthill Technical, addresses students at the institution last week. Superintendent of Police Richard Hylton looks on.

A prominent former pupil of Dinthill Technical High has urged the school's current students to focus and make the most out of opportunities as they present themselves in their journey towards adulthood.

Businessman Donovan Betancourt, the chairman of school affairs at Dinthill, delivered the message as he addressed the students during school devotion last week.

"You have to make use of the opportunities. They're going to be opportunities... but they are not (widespread), so you have to focus," Betancourt said.

He was among two prominent past students of Dinthill Technical invited to deliver inspirational speeches to the students.

The other speaker, Superintendent of Police Richard Hylton advised the students that what they want to become in life starts at Dinthill, and urged them to pay attention to what they are being taught.

The motivational talk was part of a wider programme initiated by members of the school's alumni association to give back to the institution and play a more active role in guiding the progress of current students. Dinthill last year celebrated its 80th anniversary.
