Jounen Kweyol day activities began with a general assembly and continued, as much as possible, with everything creole for the rest of the day. The students got an opportunity to speak the language, listen to a story, sing some songs and win prizes before going to enjoy some of the day on a class level. In the class, all students were busy participating in various planned activities like reading stories, asking riddles and eating food. The day ended with some dancing in the breezeway and the crowd pleaser – bamboo bursting!
With all the excitement of installing a new principal, the Feast of La Marguerite was almost forgotten. During a quick lunch time assembly, on October 17, 2019, students sang and listened to songs and had a short parade in the breezeway. Our culture is too dear to us to go by unobserved, it does not matter how quick or low key; Vive La Marguerite!
