The National Commission on Crime Prevention (NCCP) will begin holding its annual Summer Programme from July 21 to Aug. 15.
The programme will be conducted every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 noon.
The annual summer programme caters to children 9 years and older and will be conducted in Sandy Bay, Georgetown, Lowmans Windward, Stubbs, Marriaqua, Kingstown, Campden Park, Questelles and Troumaca.
This year’s programme will be complimented by several discussion/workshop sessions on human trafficking; breaking the silence on child abuse, conflict resolution and self esteem, crime and violence, social skills and etiquette, good citizens and cyber crime/cyber bullying.
Governmental and non-governmental organisations such as the Police Force, Ministries of Education and National Reconciliation, and Soroptimist are partnering with the NCCP to conduct the sessions for the children.
The NCCP says parents are especially encouraged to send their children to the programme as it affords them an opportunity to learn about important social issues while learning to play the pan.
At the conclusion of the two-week programme, participants will be presented with certificates and are given an opportunity to play the pan at a community concert.
