Student Councils Leadership Workshop Culminates With Cocktail Reception
A two-day leadership workshop for students organised by the Department of Education in the Nevis Island Administration (NIA) held under the theme “Empowering our Youth for Future Leadership”, culminated on April 16, 2008, with a cocktail reception which was held at the Old Manner Hotel in Gingerland.
Through the courtesy of Premier of Nevis and Minister of Education Hon. Joseph Parry, the cocktail was held in honor of both Primary and Secondary School’s Student body Councils. Mr. Parry told the young leaders he had enjoyed the discussion he had with them as one of the workshop’s facilitators.
Premier Parry disclosed that he was pleased the future leaders were motivated to attend the two-day leadership course and more importantly, he hoped they had learnt numerous things that would make a difference in their lives and therefore would encourage them to pursue good leadership through positive reinforcement.
“I hope all of you will continue to be friends and that this group of young people will never forget each other. I want you to form a [human] ring around the island and understand we are one people and if you demonstrate this, you would help to remove the negative things that are taking place in our society,” the Premier said.
