SSSD hosts Crafting a college entrance essay workshop.

PHILIPSBURG:--- For many students applying to colleges and universities in the United States or Canada, a college essay is a must, while for some schools in the Netherlands motivation letters are the norm. Drafting these college application essays or motivation letters can be a challenge. However, the Student Support Services Division (SSSD) of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth, and Sport is here to help.
SSSD is holding a workshop entitled “Crafting a College Entrance Essay and Motivation Letter” on Thursday, November 23, 2017 from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM. This event will be held at SSSD’s office which is located in the Amigo Building, across from the Police Station next to the Windward Island Bank (WIB) in Philipsburg. This workshop aimed at students in the last two years of secondary school and recent graduates.
“Writing for some people comes naturally, however, others struggle to express themselves. This workshop is aimed at giving students an edge when it comes to writing their college application essays,” said SSSD officials.
According to SSSD officials, during this workshop, students will critically analyze excerpts of essays so they can apply the lessons to their own writings. They added that emphasis will be placed on the IBC method for essays and having a proper thesis. The other aspects of essay writing and motivational letter writing will be explained. The importance of the essay and letter with respect to their entire application will also be highlighted.
Students are urged to call Student Support Services Division at Tel. 543-1235 to register for this workshop since space is limited. If parents or students have any questions on these workshops, they can contact the same number for more information. Workshop participants are urged to be on time and bring their own writing utensils.
Student Support Services Division (SSSD) provides services to students referred by the schools. These services consist of psychological services, counseling services, social work services, educational diagnostic services, career services, and parent education sessions.
