The Boca Secondary School has embarked on an educational initiative to strengthen the relationships between the school and primary schools in District 6 named the Technical & Vocational Educational Training (TVET) programme.
The aim of TVET is to expose primary school students to some of the technical areas of study offered the Boca Secondary School.
“This is another pillar on an already solid foundation for us as a secondary school. We continue to bridge the gap between primary school and the secondary school climate that is actually a key to ensuring a great future for our youth”, said Principal of Boca Secondary School, Cephas Belfon.
“The region and by extension the world is moving towards technology and technical vocations and we are moving with it”, he added.
According to the school principal, the scope of knowledge students will be opened to in the inaugural programme is in keeping with a vision of the school’s drive to educate Grenada’s youth as the school strives to ensure all its students move on to the workforce or to further their education with at least one technical subject.
Belfon said the entrants will have a window into the many skills that can be studied and mastered at the Boca Secondary school in hopes of a better relationship between the school and the community as well as improving the overall performance of the school.
The two areas of study for the TVET programme are Introduction to Building & Furniture Technology and Introduction to Electronic & Electrical Technology with a duration of ten weeks for one and a half hours once a week.
TVET will be facilitated by teachers of the Boca Secondary School.
Last Friday saw the launch of the programme at the School compound.
