MINISTER FOR EDUCATION ENCOURAGES READERS TO FIND INTEREST IN LOCAL CONTENT

 

Minister for Education, Human Resource Planning, Vocational Training and National Excellence, Hon Octavia Alfred is encouraging readers to take an interest in local content.

Minister Alfred says over the years we have seen the emergence of Dominican writers who are producing pieces of fiction and poetry.

“As Ministry, we need to take a look at incorporating more of these into our reading schedules at schools and I encourage the library to seek these writers out and stock our libraries with their own work. This is another way we can promote and preserve our culture similarly to the initiatives we are launching in our schools to promote the speaking of our creole language,” Honourable Alfred stated.
