CFBC partners with Canadian colleges on Agri Studies

St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College (CFBC) is solidifying its partnership with two Canadian colleges in the area of Agriculture Studies. On Thursday, representatives of Dalhousie University and Nova Scotia Community College were present at a meeting at the CFB College along with local school officials and Ministry of Agriculture representatives to discuss the program and partnership. WINN spoke to Dr. Leighton Naraine after a brief opening ceremony Thursday about what this partnership program entails. He said it has been in the works for several years and it is now being taken to a “higher level” where the College is partnering with several universities. “In the first instance we want our students to have access to universities beyond an Associates Degree. So they can go to the University of Dalhousie and get a full Bachelors Degree…in Agricultural Studies,” Dr. Naraine said. 

Dr. Kathleen Kevany of Dalhousie University spoke Thursday morning at a brief opening ceremony about the partnership, where she stressed how students will benefit from the program. “Who will benefit from this? Students. Its really about adult learners, school leavers from secondary schools will come to take part in the program,” Kevany said adding that the University benefits by partnering with their colleagues in St. Kitts.

Also addressing the gathering at the opening ceremony was Dr. Hermia Morton Anthony, President of the CFBC, where she lauded the benefits of partnerships between St. Kitts and Nevis and Canada and the benefits that will derive from this new cooperation. Mr. Clyde Christopher, Chairman of Technical Vocational Education Training (TVET) Council also lauded the partnership and said he expects it to benefit vocational training in St. Kitts and Nevis.  “We want this open up to everybody else also and from the TVET Council perspective we have to make sure that we provide the opportunity or the channel for that to be achieved,” Christopher said.
