SCSS Class of 2000 brings Cre­ole Cheer!

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The grad­u­at­ing class of the year 2000 from Soufriere Com­pre­hen­sive Sec­ondary School is on a mis­sion to el­e­vate the lives of the stu­dents of their alma mater and their en­tire com­mu­nity.

The group, af­fec­tion­ately known as CO2, came to­gether for a class re­u­nion a few years ago and has since evolved into an or­gan­i­sa­tion that has not only un­der­taken projects at the school, but within the town.

Its most re­cent dis­play of al­tru­ism was when the mem­bers sur­prised fire of­fi­cers, po­lice, nurses and doc­tors with break­fast as a ges­ture of grat­i­tude for their ser­vices. The group chose to treat the staff of these es­sen­tial ser­vices as a sign of ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the care which they show to the pub­lic ev­ery­day through their du­ties.

The staff were pleas­antly sur­prised since only their su­per­vi­sors had been aware of what was about to hap­pen. The po­lice were es­pe­cially touched and lauded the group for their ef­forts to up­lift the spirit of the com­mu­nity. The po­lice also ex­pressed an in­ter­est in col­lab­o­rat­ing with CO2 in fu­ture projects.

In keep­ing with the theme of Cre­ole Her­itage Month, the es­sen­tial ser­vices staff in Soufriere were treated to a sump­tu­ous cre­ole break­fast, which they thor­oughly en­joyed!
