Rotary Club of St. Kitts gives over 800 Dictionaries To 3rd Graders in Primary Schools throughout St. Kitts

Once again as part of projects executed by the Rotary Club of St. Kitts for the year 2014 – 2015 is the Dictionary Project. This project originally launched on October 14th 2013 at the University Centre and continued for the second year on October 6th 2014.

The Project was undertaken by the Rotary Club of St. Kitts (RCSK) in partnership with the St. Kitts Nevis Ministry of Education (MOE), and the Christophe Harbour Foundation.

 

The Club distributed over 800 dictionaries to the 3rd Graders in the primary schools throughout the island of St. Kitts as well as in Nevis.  Each child enrolled in the 3rd grade in public and private schools round the Federation were handed a Dictionary.

 

The Rotary Club of St. Kitts envisage this Dictionary Project will aid students in a very specific way as the 3rd grade is generally noted as a critical point in a child's education; it is the point at which a child progresses from 'learning to read' to 'reading to learn'.  In this regard the club and its partners see giving the gift of a dictionary as a very important gesture, to give each third grader an opportunity to own his or her very own Dictionary.  

 

The Rotary International Four Way Test for Rotary International is imprinted on the inside cover of each dictionary. It reads:

Of the things We Think Say or Do:

 

1.         Is it the Truth?

2.         Is it Fair to all concern?

3.         Will it Build Good Will and Better Friendship?

4.         Will it be beneficial to all Concern?

  

Each 3rd Grader continues to have the opportunity to have their personal dictionary with their own name written in it.

This is yet another meaningful way in which the RCSK impacts the lives of many by giving back to the communities.
