Bradshaw wants tertiary students to give back
Minister of Education Santia Bradshaw is urging those involved in tertiary level education to embrace volunteerism and give back to society.
She was speaking at the launch of the National Give Back Programme at the Barbados Community College (BCC) yesterday. She said 11 per cent of Government’s annual budget was dedicated to financing education.
“To whom much is given, much is expected. And it cannot be that Government continues to spend significant sums of monies on educating our people and not creating in them a sense of giving back, a sense of purpose, in terms of recognising that a sacrifice is being made for you in order to make this country, and certainly the rest of the world, a lot better,” she said.
Bradshaw also encouraged past students to get on board with the initiative and spruce up the dilapidated “Eyrie” building on the Howells Cross Road, St Michael campus. (RA)
