The Badness Outta Style” School Tour takes to the road in St. Kitts next week.
The three-day event from June 29th to July 1st, jointly sponsored by the Ministry of National Security and TEMPO, is aimed at supporting an anti-violence message with a high energy presentation/performance for the youth and will include local and regional artistes.
Appearances will be made by youth role models, representatives of the Ministry of National Security, Her Majesty’s Prison, Community and Social Services and the Ministry of Education.
Visits will be made to the Washington Archibald High School, the Basseterre High School and the St. Theresa’s Convent School on Monday, June 29th; at the Cayon High School and the Cayon Primary School on Tuesday, June 30th and at the Sandy Point High School, Sandy Point Primary and Verchild’s High on Wednesday July 1st.
Each show will last 90 minutes from 10:00 A.M to 11:30 A.M. with the exception of the how at the Cayon High School which will begin at 11:30 A.M. on the school grounds.
Organisers are tight-lipped about the artistes saying the students who must be wearing school uniform are in for a surprise.
The campaign aimed at reducing and eradicating youth gang violence and crime in St. Kitts and Nevis and the Caribbean was discussed between Founder, Chairman and CEO of TEMPO, Mr. Frederick Morton Jr. during a courtesy call on St. Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas in January this year.
The anti-violence campaign is been duplicated throughout the Caribbean and involves regional governments, corporate Caribbean, students, teachers, parents, the religious community and other social partners.
