School launches CARES Savers Club


Share post:

CHILDREN NEED TO LEARN the importance of financial discipline from an early age.
This was the message from Minister of Education Ronald Jones as he delivered the feature remarks during the official launch of the CARES [Children Are Really Enthusiastic Savers] Club at George Lamming Primary School, in association with the City of Bridgetown Co-operative Credit Union Limited.
The minister told the students that saving was a form of expressing civic, social, economic and personal responsibilities, aiding in the country’s development.
And while noting that his ministry supported and encouraged the initiative, Jones said he wanted as many schools as possible to become a part of such a programme which gave the island’s children a sense of responsibility. (AH)
