Stu­dents ben­e­fit from Chil­dren of Our Vil­lage Project

Jamaica Gleaner - - NEWS - Carl Gilchrist/Gleaner Writer

TEN MALE stu­dents from the St Ann’s Bay Pri­mary School have ben­e­fited from train­ing in sift skills, thanks to the Chil­dren of Our Vil­lage Project, an on­go­ing part­ner­ship be­tween the St Ann Home­com­ing Foun­da­tion and HEART Trust/NTA – Em­ploy­ment Ca­reer Ser­vices – North East Re­gional Of­fice.

The train­ing, which seeks to help in guid­ing the boys in a pro­fes­sional di­rec­tion as they tran­si­tion to young adults, be­gan when they were in grade four, with ses­sions be­ing held once per month.

Now in grade six, they are pre­par­ing to sit the Grade Six Achieve­ment Test, and it is hoped that the train­ing would have helped in pre­par­ing them in some way to face the chal­lenge.

The group re­ceived a boost re­cently as Cardiff Ho­tel and Spa hosted a for­mal lun­cheon, where proper din­ing eti­quette was demon­strated by Ray­mond Dou­glas, din­ing room man­ager at the ho­tel.

A men­tor­ship com­po­nent is to be added to the pro­gramme in the near fu­ture.

Ses­sions are hosted by the ca­reer devel­op­ment of­fi­cers of the HEART Trust/NTA – St Ann’s Bay Re­gional Of­fice.
