St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN) — In commemoration of the 32nd Anniversary of the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College, a Memorial Lecture is slated to take place on Friday, October 09, 2020, at the Conference Room of the college.
The lecture, which is set to commence at 1:30 p.m., will be delivered by Dr. Susan Owen of the University of the West Indies Open Campus. The topic is “The right to education, positions on diversity, law, and ethics in educational leadership”.
A wreath-laying ceremony took place at the graveside of the burial site of the late Clarence Fitzroy Brant at the St. Peter’s Anglican Church on Wednesday, October 07, 2020.
Established in 1988, the then College of Further Education was mandated to consolidate and augment the opportunities for tertiary level education in the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis. The College came into existence with the amalgamation of four previously existing institutions: The School of Nursing inaugurated in 1966; the Teacher’s College established in 1967; the Technical College organized in 1971; and the Sixth Form.
The former Teacher’s College is now the Division of Teacher Education; the Technical College has given way to the Division of Technical, Vocational Education and Management Studies; and the School of Nursing has become the Division of Health Sciences. The Division of Arts, Science, and General Studies replaces the Sixth Form, and the Division of Adult and Continuing Education is a new addition.
