FAPS staff began the second term by sharing Christian values with the students. All present were reminded to avoid one of the seven deadly sins – Wrath. Also on the ground, was Mr. Cyrus Cepal (District Education Officer) adding his voice to that of Mrs. Sandy Louisy (Principal). Two powerful messages to start Term 2.
The staff and students of FAPS all joined in the launching of Mathematics Month on November 5, 2019 under the theme “Mathematics Through the Eyes of A Child”.
Mathematics shared the spotlight with the observance of Music and the recognition of Road Race athletes. A triple treat in song and class presentations. Some lucky winners even bounced back with Lucozade!
Although she had a short stint at the helm, from 2013 – 2019, by all indications it appears to be the most impactful. Mrs. Madonna Flovenville made a grand entrance at her retirement ceremony and was pleased to hear glowing tributes from her fellow colleagues, friends and family. A very memorable goodbye!
Students headed to the streets on November 1, 2019 for their annual road race; under the supervision of participating teachers and parents, as well as outriders from the Babonneau police and the St. Lucia Red Cross.
Thank you, to all stakeholders who played their part in this incident free school activity.
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!
Keys exchanged hands today, October 16, 2019 at Fond Assau Primary. Present to witness were DEO for District 1, Mr. Cyrus Cepal and school staff. Everyone is pleased with the smooth transition and look forward to many memorable and productive years under the new leadership of Mrs. Sandy Lousy.
Mrs. Madona Florenville has come to the end of her journey as Principal of the Fond Assau Primary School. During the last 6 years (2013-2019) under her leadership, the Child Friendly School has undergone much improvement and enjoyed their fair share of success. On October 15, 2019, the students and former principal Ms. Virginia Poyotte got a chance to say ‘’Thank You and All the Best”. As a God-fearing christian and goal-oriented leader; her stint at the helm has left an indelible mark in the history book of FAPS.
