Minister Carty announces New Initiative on Teacher’s Day
(EMU) – St. Kitts, October 10, 2012: Students enrolled at the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College Teacher Education Division now have a great incentive to work hard following a recent announcement by Minister of Education Honorable Nigel Carty about an opportunity to further studies.
The Minister made the announcement at a ceremony following the International Teachers Day march when he revealed that he has made a submission to the Cabinet to provide a full scholarship to the best performing graduate of the Teacher Division to pursue studies in Education or any field of their choice.
Minister Carty reminisced about the challenges, responsibilities and nobility of being a teacher. He noted that by the time he was in high school there was no other profession in which he had interest but in becoming a teacher which he did for some fifteen years.
He encouraged teachers to consider opportunities available to them referring specifically to the Ministry’s vigilance in identifying teachers who demonstrate consistency of good performance and effort as well as who work well with teams to advance their careers by taking on leadership roles such as principal and deputy principal.
President of the Teacher’s Council Mrs. Carlene Morton called on teachers at that same event to exercise the highest level of professionalism and to take advantage of the opportunities and fraternity available to those who become members of the Union.
She further called on long term members to be role models to younger teachers to carry on the legacy of the noble profession and to continue to carry out the mandate of the Teacher’s Union to advance the positive experience and impact of the teaching profession.
