Region Five recieve school uniform vouchers

Government’s commitment to supporting and transforming the country’s education system remains strong, and achievements over the last years in both attendance and outstanding performance are testimony to prudent educational policies and programmes.           
This was reiterated by Education Minister Priya Manickchand today during a visit to several communities in the Mahaicony creek, Region Five.   
Following the visit, Minister Manickchand also met with scores of parents, students and teachers at the Karamat Primary School where she participated in the distribution of school uniform vouchers.

While reflecting on successes of the school uniform programme, she said it was introduced about a decade ago to improve school attendance across the country.

The programme, Minister Manickchand added, which was initially started by the Difficult Circumstances Unit of the Ministry of Human Services and Social Security to assist persons in with difficult circumstances, was eventually integrated into wider school system.Read more
