Vouchers For Better Education Handed Out

Vouchers For Better Education Handed Out

Several needy families across the sister isle of Carriacou and Petite Martinique can now ensure that their children are properly attired when the new school year commences in September.

Last week, Minister for Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs, Hon Elvin Nimrod together with Permanent Secretary in that ministry, Javan Williams presented several vouchers to needy families.

Addressing the ceremony, Minister Nimrod told the parents that while the contribution is small, it represents an increase over what they have been receiving in the past.  He said that Government is committed to ensuring that no child is left behind when it comes to education.

Minister Nimrod, himself a former schoolteacher, said attending school is what gives a child the opportunity to secure a sound education so that he or she could later return to take care of those in need.

Reminding the recipients that education is the key to success, the minister called on the parents and guardians to ensure that the children attend school as often as possible.  He told the recipients that the vouchers must be used for the purpose, which they were given for.  

 “Education is the most important tool to take one from one stage to another and I’m confident that when these recipients are successful later in life, they would return to help their families and those in need”, said Minister Nimrod.

The world, he told the parents, is getting more competitive on a daily basis and therefore the government is doing whatever is possible to ensure that children secure a sound education so that they would be able to pursue a successful career in the future.
