SKN PULSE MEDIA – Mavis Parris, Clothing and Textiles teacher at the Charlestown Secondary School (CSS), will leave Nevis at the end of August for Indonesia.
Parris will be pursuing studies in Batik. An opportunity made available by the Republic of Indonesia.
In May of 2017 in both St. Kitts and Nevis, an execution of a Batik-making skills workshop hosted by Indonesia made it possible for more than 60 nationals of the federation to benefit from the exercise.
Indonesia promised then, to provide the opportunity for the top participants to attend a similar course in Indonesia in the very near future, and that opportunity is being afforded to Mavis Parris.
In an article posted via the Government Information Service, Hon. Mark Brantley, Premier of Nevis and Minister of Education publicly commended Ms. Parris for pursuing the offer to study in in a distant land.
During his monthly conference, Brantley stated, “Certainly Mavis is a very skilful young person and so we encourage her and thank her for making the effort as well. It is not easy sometimes to leave your life here and depart to some place as distant as Indonesia and so she is quite brave to make that effort…She will leave shortly and we want to wish her safe travels and good success there.”
It is expected that upon her return she would pass on the skills learnt.
