What started off as a regular day, included a surprise visit for young Dervaj Edward. Ms. Alvina Reynolds, the former parliamentary representative for Babonneau and a past student of the Fond Assau Primary School, heard the news of his performance in the football arena and that he was also celebrating a birthday. A great day to congratulate and motivate the up and coming star. Click here to watch the video
The staff, parents and students of FAPS began the academic year in songs of praise and prayer. Pastor Sherwin Griffith, made himself available to intercede on their behalf and speak on the theme “Changing Mindsets: Continue Working Smarter to Achieve our Goals ”. He encouraged his audience to sharpen their pencil by praying, questioning, reading and saying thanks. A very powerful message which received a standing ovation from the students.
The principal took the opportunity to award all students who scored 85% and above with their “Honour Roll” pins and wished everyone a productive and enjoyable academic year.
Fond Assau Primary continues to press on with their efforts to make technology and integral part of the teaching-learning process. Who better to help them lead the charge than Mr. Germain Anthony, officer for Technology Integration at the Curriculum and Materials Development Unit (CAMDU). He facilitated a Workshop on Integration of Technology in the Classroom: Google-Suite for Education on August 28, 2019 of preparation week. He commended the principal and staff for being the first primary school to achieve this milestone and pledged his support in their future endeavours.
The staff takes this opportunity to thank the IT Unit through the Ministry of Education for their unwavering support; past, present and future!
Coming out the the CEE exam with a 15% increase over the last group and reaching the National Mean, the class of 2019 puts their school in the spotlight with a score of 61.02. The CEE, MST and Class top performers were all showered with gifts and awards from their parents and teachers. Present to play a big prize giving role was a representative of St. Lucia-Atlanta Association – a tablet for each Grade 6 student. A momentous occasion for the school and a high parting note for the outgoing principal Mrs. Madona Florenville giving the education system 40 years of dedicated service.
Thanks to the self-less support of C.O. Williams Construction and Advance Construction and Engineering Services, the school was able to make some much needed improvements in preparation for their Award Ceremony 2019. Their combined effort resulted in the construction of a walkway, which offers quicker access to the Open Breezeway from the school courtyard. A much needed addition which prevents the spread of muddy footprints on rainy days.
The staff urges all parents and friends of Fond Assau to spread the word and bless those generous organisations with big business. They deserve every courtesy extended.
Students were spellbound, by a visit from the Forestry Department, on June 26th, 2019. They were fortunate to set eyes on an iguana, a boa constrictor and the national bird of St. Lucia, the Amazona Versi-Color. They learnt many interesting facts, asked lots of questions and even got a chance to listen to the calls of the Jacquot. A selected few participated in a planting exercise of the national flowers; the Rose and Marguerite.
A day filled with excitement. All in observance of World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought. Hats off to the Forestry Department and the work they do!
Approximately 50 students, 5 parents and 5 teachers took to the streets for the school’s Annual Sponsored Walk. The adventurous lot, were covered in prayer then warmed up to some aerobic tunes before blazing a return trip through Boguis via Chassin back road.
Their safety was monitored by the joint efforts of the Babonneau Police and Fire Service, who shared some road safety tips and alerted motorists to the presence of the students. The Principal and staff extend appreciation for their consistent support. We give thanks and praise to the Almighty, for an incident free sponsored walk.
After the walk, students and teachers engaged in fun outdoor activities; netball, cricket and of course the crowd-pleasing play-set fiesta.
Freelance Journalist Mr. Stan Bishop accepted an invitation to read a story to all students of F.A.P.S as part of reading month activities. What an interesting choice of books! A beautifully delivered and interactive reading of a local treat by British author, Sara Grant; “The Secret Treasures of St. Lucia”.
Students were at the edge of their seats as they enjoyed a wonderful mix of fact and fiction. Lots of trivia and vivid imagery about St. Lucia!
Selected students from all grades joined forces on Friday May 19, 2019 to win the Reading Month Spelling Bee Challenge. However, there seem to be something mysterious about the scores. Can you help stop the plans of a naughty student?
