“We work with the Town Board today and we are beautifying the entire Central Park, we did some landscaping, we picked up the garbage, we are now painting all the benches and so the ITVET trainees have been all day working really hard, am very proud of them and the work that they are doing and we are just doing some public awareness for the public to know that we are here ITVET is an option, it is not the last resort it is your first option, there is a need for a lot of trained skilled workers and we are here to offer the services.”

Apart from beautifying the park, the work carried out also served as an additional training for the trainee’s.

“Most of the work that we do here is work that we do at the school so actually we are displaying two of the programs that we are offering which is ornamental horticulture which they do landscaping and plant frication and so this is what the kids are doing also and the painting is also part of building and growing maintenance trade which they learn, everything that has to do with maintenance of the grounds on a building and so most of the trainees when they graduate from us they actually are employed in many hotels and resorts and businesses that need that type of work.”

Another activity carried out in commemoration of TVET Week was the marketing of courses offered to the general public.
