Prime Minister Lauds Laptop Distribution Programme During St. James Secondary Visit

Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar, on Thursday presented form one students of the St. James Secondary school with their laptops, saying that based on feedback she had received on the programme, parents and students had testified that being equipped with laptops had allowed them to grow in an intellectual capacity while fostering interaction in line with international standards like their global counterparts.

Mrs. Persad Bissessar also noted that teachers had testified to the benefits of the laptop programme, contradicting the sentiments of persons who the PM said had described the laptop distribution as a waste of money.

The Prime Minister told students and teachers at the institution that in 1999 – 2000 when she held the post of Minister of Education, she had a vision and the ambition to ensure that the children of T&T would benefit from accessing free primary, secondary , tertiary and early childhood care and education. She noted that the country’s citizens now have a greater opportunity to attain a better standard of living and ultimately a more civilized society and a prosperous economy for T&T.
