Jost Van Dyke School-Primary and Secondary students, teachers & Tourism Officer Carnel Clyne partake in BVI Tourist Board’s Tourism Education Programme

Tortola, British Virgin Islands, 7th February, 2012 – Primary and secondary school students from the Jost Van Dyke School participated in a tourism education presentation carried out by the BVI Tourist Board on the 25th of January.

This presentation was among a series of tourism education programmes being held by the BVI Tourist Board to educate students on the importance of tourism for the BVI.  Aspects of tourism were highlighted such as the definition of tourism, the history of tourism in the BVI, and the impact of tourism on students and the population.

The future of tourism in the BVI is dependent on the success of our youth to learn the skills and knowledge needed to sustain tourism, one of our key pillars. For this reason, it is important to provide students with the tools required to secure growth within this sector.

A number of schools throughout the territory have begun to take advantage of these tourism education presentations, which are open to all primary and secondary schools in the BVI. To participate, schools need to submit a request to the BVI Tourist Board for the topic of their choice.

The following presentations are offered: Tourism in the BVI, Sustainable Tourism, Careers in Tourism, Marketing BVI Tourism, and the BVI Tourist Board and Film Commission.

Each topic is interactive and designed for students to gain a better understanding of tourism and its key role in securing the islands’ prosperity.
