BASSETERRE St. Kitts, March 28th, 2012 -- Grade Six Students Benefit From Social Security Educational Information. Approximately nine hundred and fifty (950) students were given insights about the history and functions of Social Security during the period March 12th to 19th when officers of the Social Security Board made presentations at thirty primary schools throughout the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis.
A team of eleven (11) officers traversed the two islands providing on the spot education to the nation’s young students. This exercise came under the Institution’s strategic goal of educating the public on the operations of the Fund.
The program specifically designed for Grade Six students provided an opportunity to introduce a general understanding of Social Security, of its mandate to provide benefits to insured persons when contingencies arise, as well as to explain the rights and obligations of employers, employees and the self-employed.
The students were engaged in role play which highlighted various aspects of Social Security and brought out the dramatic talents of our future generation. At the end of the sessions, students were rewarded with tokens of appreciation and participated in the question and answer segment.
The role play also allowed the students to demonstrate their understanding of the newly imparted information.
Social Security is committed to the education of the public and views its presence in the schools as an appropriate avenue to share information on the Fund and its extensive coverage to insured persons of all ages.
An advanced level of social security information is imparted to the Federation’s high school students in the latter part of the year.
