Building new partnerships for the development of education in the twin isle parish of Carriacou and Petite Martinique is the aim of Area Education Officer for Carriacou and Petite Martinique, Rosalina Patrice-Lendore.
Speaking at the annual Michelle Coy Reading Competition, Patrice- Lendore made a special appeal for organisations, stakeholders and friends of Carriacou and Petite Martinique to partner with the Education Division through the provision of incentives.
She said this is even more critical as they seek to assist the needy or slow students.
In addition, assistance is also needed in areas such as Mathematics, Science and Music.
Observing the display by the Shakespeare Mas players from Mt. Pleasant Government School; Senator and Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs Jester Emmons noted that the time is right for the harnessing of the talents of the nation’s youths.
It is hoped that organisations and individuals will come forward to make a positive difference in the education system on the sister isles.
