MIN OF ED­U­CA­TION MON­I­TORS AC­CI­DENT IN­VOLV­ING ST. LU­CIAN STU­DENTS IN GUYANA

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Min­is­ter for Ed­u­ca­tion, In­no­va­tion, Gen­der Re­la­tions and Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Hon. Gale Rigob­ert has ex­pressed her grat­i­tude, and that of the Gov­ern­ment of Saint Lu­cia, to the Pres­i­dent of the Co-op­er­a­tive Republic of Guyana, David Granger, for agree­ing to have his gov­ern­ment bear all of the cost as­so­ci­ated with treat­ment and well-be­ing of Nick Omar Joseph, an eight-year-old Saint Lu­cian Cub Scout se­ri­ously in­jured in a road ac­ci­dent, whilst at­tend­ing a ‘Cu­boree’ in Guyana.

Dr. Rigob­ert said the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion, which has been in touch with the or­gan­is­ers of the ‘Cu­boree’ and of­fi­cials of the Gov­ern­ment of Guyana, con­tin­ues to be up­dated reg­u­larly on Nick Joseph’s con­di­tion. Dr. Rigob­ert ex­pressed sad­ness at the turn of events, and said her heart goes out to the fam­i­lies of Nick Joseph and Dar­nell Matthew, a nine-year-old Cub Scout also in­volved in the road ac­ci­dent who suf­fered mi­nor in­juries.

The Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion will con­tinue to mon­i­tor the sit­u­a­tion and pro­vide any sup­port, where nec­es­sary, to en­sure young Joseph makes a full re­cov­ery and safely re­turns to Saint Lu­cia.
