SOUTH REWARDS — Finance Minister Perry Geerlings received a group of students from the St. Dominic School Form 2, at his office at the Government Administration Building, Soualiga Road #1 in Philipsburg on Tuesday morning. Minister Geerlings spoke briefly with the students about the role of the Minister of Finance for the Government of St. Maarten.
He encouraged the students to stay in school and also reminded them that they are being prepared to take up leadership roles in the future. The students along with their Social Studies Teacher received a full tour of the Government Administration building from Government’s Head of Division Resources and Support, Mr Erno Labega.
Labega routinely gets requests from various schools to host students for special tours of the facility. During those visits, Labega gives students an explanation of the multiple departments starting in the Reception area. He also ensures that the students get to meet the ministers so they can ask questions and get first-hand information about matters of general interest.
