The 16 col­lege stu­dents from mu­sic, danc­ing, per­form­ing arts and other fields will be ac­com­pa­nied by one pro­fes­sor from the per­form­ing arts, and two as­sis­tants.

Whilst in Saint Lu­cia, the del­e­ga­tion will pay cour­tesy calls on Gover­nor Gen­eral Her Ex­cel­lency Dame Pear­lette Louisy and Prime Min­is­ter Hon. Dr. Kenny An­thony on Septem­ber 7th and Min­is­ter for Ed­u­ca­tion Hon. Dr. Robert Lewis and sev­eral other gov­ern­ment min­is­ters on Septem­ber 8th.

The del­e­ga­tion will also hold a cul­tural per­for­mance
