Education officials are reporting that this is being done to honour the many students within St. Kitts and Nevis who performed exceptionally during the recent overseas examinations at both the CAPE and CSEC levels.
“When people think about education they only think about teachers, they only think about schools but there is so much more,” said Education Officer Lisa Pistana, while appearing on this week’s edition of SKNIS Perspectives. “There are so many different units and departments contained within the Ministry of Education and we really want persons to get an understanding, a comprehensive look at us.”
She said that it is therefore because of the hard work and dedication primarily of the students, parents and those officials in the field of education that we were able to produce the best results in the past four years.
The education official said a number of activities have been planned for September 7 to 14 which is designed to give the public an opportunity to learn more about the Ministry of Education and its staff, as well as the partners who contribute to the development of the nation’s youth population.
“We also want to give ourselves… along with our education partners and stakeholders, an opportunity to talk about some of those real issues within education and to help us plan for the way forward,” Mrs. Pistana added.
Education Week 2013 culminates on Saturday, September 14 with the Ministry of Education’s Awards Ceremony. Awards will be presented to current and retired employees in education whether they are administrator, teachers, school meals cook or other types of ancillary staff members.
