Opening of Technical Vocational School

The Ministry of Education is opening a community technical and vocational school in Barbuda. Senator Mackenzie Frank is the co-ordinator of the organising committee. Core subjects are expected to be carpentry and building technology, automotive mechanics, kindergarten studies, and IT. More areas may be offered in the future, depending on local demand and the availability of teachers with the necessary expertise. A minimum of 8 students is required for a class. The courses will follow CXC, City and Guilds, and other vocational syllabuses.

The school will be open in the afternoon and evening, a fee will be charged to students, and the teachers will be paid. Anyone interested in attending classes or becoming a teacher should contact Courtney Burton, chairman of the Education Board or Mackenzie Frank via the Barbuda Council.

Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
Free the people and let them move in liberty
Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
So the struggle continue.
But while the struggle continue, I'm going to tell you.
We rastaman will set the world free...
