The flagpole was sponsored by the Gaspard family – longstanding supporters of F.A.P.S. The Gazebo was sponsored by the parliamentary representative, Mr. Ezechiel Joseph. Also on board was Harris Paints, who assisted by donation a few gallons of paint to beautify the finished product. The reading room was sponsored through a joint effort by; Make it Happen Foundation and Duboulay-Chastanet Law Firm (shelves and funds to acquire books) and Hands Across the Sea (sourcing and shipping of books and related materials).

Special “Thank You” to Ministry Officials, Past Students, Members of the Community Staff and Students of the School and especially our Sponsors for the part they played bringing this Historic occasion to fruition.

Adding to the Tourism Product

 

 

 

For years, visitors have passed by in busses, taking pictures and on many occasions given waves and smiles as they commute to Sky Rides, Fond La Ti Sab and other tourist destinations in the area.

A very authentic learning experience for students of Grade 3 and loads of entertainment for their guests.
