Basseterre, St. Kitts, 16th March, 2018 ( – Over 30 students of the Tyrell-Williams Primary School completed a two-week program of Etiquette training in their final session held today, 16th March, 2018.

The enthusiastic fifth-graders were part of a wider Tourism Education Pilot Project initiated by the Ministry of Tourism.

Speaking to the media present, workshop facilitator Shaline Welcome, the Community Tourism Officer at the Ministry of Tourism, said that over the past two weeks, the participating students at Tyrell-Williams Primary did theory sessions in the first week, and this week, there were etiquette practical sessions.

Welcome spoke of the purpose behind the program.

“We are trying to encourage the children to practice good manners, behaviour, and table etiquette. Also, we wanted them to have a feel of dining out, so what we did was transform a classroom into an etiquette atmosphere, and the children could practice how to use the knife and fork, good manners at the table and good behaviour,” Welcome informed.

All the participating students will have a chance to showcase their newly acquired etiquette skills when they attend the upcoming Tourism Education Banquet, to be held in May at the Eco Park

Under the two-year old program, some students carried out various tourism based projects and others got involved in recycling projects.

“Hopefully, we will have other schools involved, but right now we are focusing on the six pilot schools. The training started in September of 2017.
