DTEMS Stu­dents’ Coun­cil vis­its the Borde­lais Cor­rec­tional Fa­cil­ity

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The stu­dents’ coun­cil at­tached to the Divi­sion of Tech­ni­cal Ed­u­ca­tion and Man­age­ment Stud­ies (DTEMS) at the Sir Arthur Lewis Com­mu­nity Col­lege (SALCC) toured the Borde­lais Cor­rec­tional Fa­cil­ity on Thurs­day.

The ed­u­ca­tional tour was or­ga­nized by the DTEMS Stu­dents’ Coun­cil to help stu­dents un­der­stand the role of the Borde­lais Cor­rec­tional Fa­cil­ity in our so­ci­ety and learn about var­i­ous ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties that are avail­able at the fa­cil­ity.

“This ed­u­ca­tional tour,” Ny­hymn Ter­rance, the Pres­i­dent of the DTEMS Stu­dents’ Coun­cil noted, “is an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity to ex­pose stu­dents to ca­reer path­ways in our prison. This project is also in line with the “Youth #FULLPo­ten­tial project the Saint Lu­cia Na­tional Youth Coun­cil and the Saint Lu­cia Na­tional Stu­dents’ Coun­cil are do­ing - ex­pose stu­dents to var­i­ous ca­reer path­ways and en­lighten them on how to get there.”

Last month, The DTEMS Stu­dents’ Coun­cil pre­sented a cheque to Help Age Saint Lu­cia Na­tional Coun­cil of and for Older Per­sons. The pre­sen­ta­tion was a fol­lowup from the char­ity show “Christ­mas Shel­lDown” held in De­cem­ber 2015.

To com­mem­o­rate Youth Month in April 2016, the coun­cil has planned de­bates and other ed­u­ca­tion and re­cre­ational ac­tiv­i­ties for stu­dents at SALCC.
