The Schools’ Programme
The Education Committee recognized that school children should be sensitized before they actually enter the workforce. A programme has been devised to convey the GIVE message to students in an interesting manner through
(i) the use of drama and
(ii) the conduct of presentations at morning assemblies.
The message involves the 5Ps which are Punctuality, Pleasant Personality, Perfect Attendance, Protection of Property andPositive Attitude. This component of the programme occurs during the first term of school (September- December) during which the Ministry visits ten (10) primary and secondary schools, Each school is also invited to inform the Ministry of one student who has exemplified the 5ps to be awarded at Speech Day (Secondary Schools) or Graduation (Primary Schools).
Useful promotional items (pencil cases, rulers, pens and pencils) bearing the GIVE logo are presented to the schools during the activity. Children appear excited about the drama and it is our hope that the message is just as readily received thus meeting our objectives.
