Independence Celebrations in St. Kitts & Nevis Have Begun

Organizers who planned the official calendar of events made known their preference this year to direct the spotlight of celebration on the children, and as a consequence quite a number of activities have been designed to deliver on that commitment.

Though Wednesday 12th September, was also reserved for what is known as the Prime Minister’s Lecture, it was the primary school students throughout the island of St. Kitts that were given the honour when top government leaders, including the Prime Minister, participated in a series of school visits. During the visits on Wednesday, the nation’s young were given the opportunity to meet
with, mingle and take photographs with the leaders.

Given the number of primary schools on St. Kitts, these visits have been scheduled for a two day period, as the ministers cover institutions in Basseterre and all rural areas where the government and private schools are located. Previously, the visits had a greater focus on the secondary institutions.

All this is in keeping with the theme this year, “Cherishing Children; Strengthening Families”.

A government spokesman has indicated that the theme was an important guiding principle for the overall national development.

Later on Wednesday evening, the events will shift to the Old Boys School on Victoria Road in Basseterre, when the son of one of the country’s National Heroes, will deliver the Prime Minister’s Lecture in front of an audience that is also expected to include many students from high schools on the island.

The guest speaker, Mr. Rustum Southwell, is the son of the late Premier C.A. Paul Southwell.
