By Zoila Palma: The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat’s pilot program on learning about CARICOM’s Single Market and Economy is engaging 50 high school students from Belize and Guyana.
The merged online classes completed the first leg of the pilot activity. The class was taught by Eletha Stewart-Johnson of Queen’s College in Guyana. Stewart-Johnson taught the class of Abdiel Medina of the Ladyville Technical High School in Belize.
This exercise is being facilitated by the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat and Medina is scheduled to teach Stewart-Johnson’s class on 17 May.
This morning, Stefphoney Grinage of the Sacred Heart College in Belize will be teaching the class of Albert Inshanally of Queen’s College in Guyana.
Then, next Thursday, May 20, Inshanally will teach Grinage’s class.
This will be the last of these virtual exchanges.
Each class in Belize and Guyana will be exposed to similar lessons and information.
Programme Manager, Laurette Bristol says that the objective is to further enhance the implementation of the CSME by making our youth, a key stakeholder grouping, more aware of the region and its possibilities.
President of Sacred Heart College, Rocio Carballo told BBN that upon receiving the call for SHC to participate, she readily accepted.
“I readily accepted and called Ms. Grinage if she would be interested and she did. SHC is so blessed that our school was chosen for this first-time online initiative,” Carballo said.
The class will commence at 9:40 a.m. with Grinage teaching Regional Integration in CARICOM classrooms.
