Over 50 retired civil servants, who previously worked with the Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development, will this week be honoured with special visits from staff at that organisation.
The event forms part of the activities for Education Month and will see staff presenting gift baskets to the several retirees at their homes on Wednesday, October 19 and Thursday, October 20.
Last year, the Ministry placed emphasis on visiting retired teachers; this year however, the decision was taken to pay tribute to retired personnel who supported the work of educators, over the years.
Education Month is being celebrated under the theme "Overcoming Educational Challenges in the 21st Century".
