Pine­hill and RCI bring Christ­mas Cheer to Stu­dents

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Pine­hill, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Ra­dio Caribbean In­ter­na­tional (RCI) brought the cur­tains down on another suc­cess­ful Christ­mas Essay Com­pe­ti­tion last week with the host­ing of a Christ­mas Party for the win­ning stu­dent and her school.

Ac­cord­ing to Krys­tal Fran­cois, Brand Man­ager for Pine­hill at Peter & Com­pany Dis­tri­bu­tion (PCD), it was a priv­i­lege to part­ner with RCI for the ini­tia­tive, which many schools through­out the is­land look for­ward to each year. “This year’s essay topic was “If I were Santa, I would…” and the com­pe­ti­tion, which ran from Novem­ber 1st to De­cem­ber 1st, , was open to all grade 3 – 6 stu­dents, is­land wide,” Fran­cois ex­plained. “The es­says were judged on orig­i­nal­ity, con­tent, me­chan­ics and word us­age,” she added.

Juanita Bret­ney of RCI says that the Christ­mas Essay Com­pe­ti­tion was de­vel­oped by the ra­dio sta­tion some nine years ago in an ef­fort to en­cour­age and re­ward lit­er­acy and ex­pres­sion in chil­dren and that it was a plea­sure to have a com­pany like PCD, through Pine­hill, on board.

The even­tual win­ner of the com­pe­ti­tion was Jean­nique Wil­liam, a Grade 5 stu­dent of the Ave Maria Girls Pri­mary School in Cas­tries. She ex­pressed de­light that she had won, as well as the fact that all the other Grade 5 stu­dents were able to en­joy the Pine­hill Christ­mas Party with her.

The Christ­mas Party was held on last week on the school com­pound, where Pine­hill pre­sented the win­ning stu­dent with a Sam­sung Galaxy Tablet. The school was also pre­sented with a Com­puter and Printer, all com­pli­ments Pine­hill. The stu­dents were en­ter­tained with mu­sic amidst a fes­tive and dec­o­ra­tive at­mos­phere as they en­joyed Pine­hill juices and other good­ies com­pli­ments Peter & Com­pany Dis­tri­bu­tion.

Pine­hill and RCI wish to thank all stu­dents who par­tic­i­pated in the Christ­mas Essay Com­pe­ti­tion win­ners and their schools.
