st thomas students benefit from path transport assistance

Jolyn Bryan, Star Writer

Several months after the Ministry of Labour and Social Security announced that beneficiaries of the Programme of Advancement Through Health and Education (PATH) would be receiving funds for transportation assistance, three schools in St Thomas have almost completed consultations with the aim of implementing the new measures by February.

It is expected that 434 PATH beneficiary students from Seaforth, St Thomas Technical, and Yallahs high schools will be assisted.

The new measures are aimed at those students who were adversely affected by the increase in bus fares in 2013 and did not achieve 85 per cent attendance for three or more compliance periods in that year.
