A Second cohort of educators have been trained to become implementers of the Child Friendly Schools (CFS) model at their respective schools.
The educators were involved in a three-day workshop aimed at improving the life chances of every child impacted by the CFS philosophy.
In the first phase of the implementation project, 13 schools were targeted and in this second phase; 21 schools are targeted, bringing the number to 34 primary schools, which represents just about half the total number of primary schools in the country.
Chief Education Officer, Lou-Anne Gilchrist says the aim of the Ministry of Education is to eventually introduce the model to all primary schools in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
She says the Ministry fully embraces the CFS model as it addresses the holistic development of students.
