July 30, 2008
The St. Thomas’s Primary School (STPS) on Friday July 25, 2008, facilitated the closing ceremony of two workshops which involved the island’ss youth. The two-week Virtues Education Workshop was coordinated by Mr. Lloyd Williams and his team for the students of Grades five and six while the Summer Football Programme for the island’ss boys, was coordinated by Mr. Emmanuel Richards.
Principal of the STPS Mrs. Earlene Maynard highlighted that she learned about the Virtues Education Workshop two years ago when she visited the Curriculum Development Unit in St. Kitts and thought it would be beneficial to her students.
Mrs. Maynard spoke of the benefits the programme created.
“I believe as a result of this programme, our children have learnt real good virtues that they can build on, virtues such as assertiveness, caring, cleanliness, confidence, courage – those pillars that help to make strong young men and women within our community,” she said.
She also offered congratulatory words to the facilitators.
“I want to congratulate Mr. Williams for his dedication. I also want to congratulate the trainees because he went a step further not just holding all of it for himself but extending his knowledge to young persons within our community ““ Chrislin Jeffers, Jacintha Lawrence andd Marika Smithen also showed a great interest in disseminating the information to our children.
