PER­FOR­MANCES MAKE US PROUD AS A COM­MU­NITY

The Star (St. Lucia) - - BOOK REVIEW -

Par­lia­men­tary rep­re­sen­ta­tive for Vieux Fort North Hon. Moses Jn. Bap­tiste is singing praise to the com­mu­nity of par­ents, care­givers, teach­ers, prin­ci­pals and stu­dents in the con­stituency of Vieux Fort North af­ter stel­lar per­for­mances in the lat­est Com­mon En­trance Ex­ams.

Ac­cord­ing to the MP, all four pri­mary schools in his con­stituency re­al­ized rel­a­tively high scores among stu­dents, with three of the four schools plac­ing in the top ten per­form­ing schools on the is­land.

A ma­jor achieve­ment is the ster­ling achieve­ment of the Belle Vue Com­bined School which placed sec­ond on the is­land. The re­cently ap­pointed Prin­ci­pal, Mrs. Janie Fon­tenelle, her staff, par­ents of Belle Vue stu­dents and all those who helped in the guid­ance of the chil­dren must be praised for this year's achieve­ment.

While Mr. Jn. Bap­tiste show­ered praise over the Com­mon En­trance re­sults, he also in­di­cated that the schools have pro­duced ex­cel­lent athletes, in­clud­ing foot­ballers on the na­tional stage, and top track and field per­form­ers, Spell­ing Bee cham­pi­ons, win­ners of Sci­ence Fair awards, and tal­ented bud­ding drama­tists, po­ets and singers.

Al­though the com­mu­nity has chal­lenges, like any other in Saint Lu­cia, Hon. Jn. Bap­tiste is of the view that strong com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions, ef­forts at unit­ing par­ents and youth around com­mu­nity goals, and con­stant high­light­ing of our successes give this ru­ral com­mu­nity the spirit to keep striv­ing for ex­cel­lence.

“We need there­fore to com­mit time and en­ergy to help those who can per­form bet­ter,” said Jn. Bap­tiste.

The MP wishes all the stu­dents well and urges all to join in the con­tin­u­ous work of mak­ing Vieux Fort North a “Dy­namic com­mu­nity with cre­ative lead­ers and well-or­gan­ised groups”.
