Councillor for Croft’s Hill Division in Clarendon, Anthony O’Connor, has appealed for young people in his division to make good use of the state-owned skills training centre in the nearby town of Kellits.

“The centre is up and running in Kellits. The youths from Croft’s Hill can go to Kellits because at least I am sure that most of our youths are trainable, and we want to see them going to the skills training centre,” he said during a recent political meeting in his division.

O’Connor, who underscored the importance of obtaining a skill, noted that one resident whom he encouraged to study plumbing at Portmore HEART Academy is now in England doing very well.

“Skill is power,” he further emphasized.
