“It was my pleasure to add to the improvement of this school so that the staff and the students could be much more comfortable. I’m here to support the school [because] I want all of you to do well. Stay on the right path, do not get [involved] in negative things—stay positive, and do not let anyone try to encourage you to do what is wrong,” Dr. Drew said.
Thehonourable prime minister used the occasion to remind students of his administration’s financial education and savings programme that will see a government contribution of EC$1,000 per child in the Federation, $500 of which is earmarked for government-owned enterprise investments.
“We want you to start building an account and learn how to save and invest from the time you are young… so that by the time you are 18 years old and you are ready to leave school you will have shares in a company and you would have money in your bank accounts to invest in your future.”
