Students can now receive e-ticketing cards
January 3, 2018 9:37 pm
The Education Ministry is currently conducting roadshows around the country to ensure that e-Ticketing cards are made available to all students.
The roadshow began at 8am this morning prior to the commencement of the new academic year on January 15th.
The roadshow is being held in allocated areas in the Central, West and Northern division from 8am-5pm from today until January 13th.
Transport assistance application forms will be available at the roadshows for children who are entitled for government school bus fare subsidies.
The ministry is advising all subsidized and non-subsidized students to take a certified original copy of their birth certificate or any other valid ID if a student wishes to make a new registration.
However, the ministry is advising all continuing subsidized students to take their student e-Ticketing cards to their nearest roadshow venues to get their 2018 term 1 funds topped up.
Parents and Guardians accompanying students need to provide a valid ID for monitoring purposes.
Non-subsidized students are advised to continue using the e-ticketing cards that were issued last year.
Representatives from the Education ministry and Vodafone will be part of the roadshow to provide assistance and attend to queries.
