On Wednesday students attending Escuela Secundaria Tecnica Mexico, Corozal Community College and Cornerstone Presbyterian High schools received the good news that come the new school year they will be receiving free transportation to and from school.

Economically this will surely prove to be a relief for parents even for those whose children are attending the Corozal ITVET. According to Corozal’s Education Manager Jahmore Lopez, the ministry is currently looking into partnering off with high schools in the Corozal District that do not provide technical subjects to their students. The idea is to offer the students an opportunity to learn a trade by providing them with free transportation to the ITVET.

“We are also looking at trying to ensure that every student at the secondary level graduates with a skill and if you look at certain schools like Escuela who has a wonderful program as well in terms of agriculture and technical aspect and so we are looking to part with those schools that don’t have that track and their students then can come to the ITVET learn a skill and actually become qualified by sitting the Belize national qualification Exam and they can also do it for the Caribbean and we have started with Corner Stone hopefully maybe we can have others that will come on board and again what we did to facilitate this we provided the transportation for those students and so that continues.”

While the details are still being worked out, Jahmore believes the move will benefit students in various aspects.

“I will be making official calls as a follow up with our principals they will need to know who the contractors are as well once those individuals are named and we work together because the process for a contractor to be paid he/she because it could be a she as well or whoever that individual it that individual has to complete a form and then that is also brought to the office so that we can verify and then that is how you will paid so there has to be that partnership and that working relationship, principals will be very much engage and involved and again if there is a student who is misbehaving that student has to be brought to the attention of the principals so we continue to work together in a collaborative fashion to ensure that we move things forward.”
