Launch of the School Integrity Club Project

Trinidad and Tobago Transparency Institute (TTTI) in collaboration with the the Integrity Commission of Trinidad and Tobago and the National Parent Teacher Association (NPTA) launched integrity clubs in the six secondary schools involved in the project and conducted a series of trainings and meetings with the principals, teachers and the Integrity Ambassadors (students). We held two training sessions with the Integrity Ambassadors, one with the Integrity Champion teachers as well as a breakfast meeting with principals. The students received training on interview techniques, strategies for implementing Integrity Clubs, understanding integrity and corruption, public speaking, communication skills as well as an understanding the global picture of corruption and its impact on the nation.

All these activities led to the official launch the School Integrity Club Project which was held on September 28th, 2018 at the Yara Auditorium, Arthur Lok Jack Global School of Business, Mt. Hope. In delivering the keynote address, the Honourable Anthony Garcia, Minister of Education noted that the launch of the Integrity Clubs in schools not only puts another dimension to the Ministry’s offerings of inclusion, quality and access to our education system but also to the essential ingredients of integrity, honour and how we interact with each other.
