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?

Elder Felix and his daughter volunteered to share the word at FAPS Christian Service on Monday 14, 2019.He spoke on the idea of changing mindlets while his daughter spoke on setting S.M.A.R.T goals in four steps. She went on to share how this is done:
- Set a big goal
- Know your purpose
- Break it down into smaller goals
- Identify possible obstacles
It was a wonderful ceremony filled with songs of praise and words of advice. A few lucky students received bibles for correct responses to questions and some copies were donated to the school library. Everyone in Grade 6 was lifted in prayer so that they may do well in the upcoming Common Entrance Exam.
The Principal and staff extend their gratitude to all those who were present, especially parents and our guest presenters.
The opportunity to learn social skills, engage in critical thinking, enjoy reading and learning are all available through playing games. The students of FAPS did all of that and more on Monday 13th May. 2019. They assembled in the breezeway and had some good wholesome interactive fun.
We invite all parents to assist by contributing a board game to the school so that students may have a wider range of games to choose from. Listen to what they had to say and catch some highlights of the activity:
Although all grades were involved in the activity, it just warms your heart when the youngest of the bunch does a great job! All students were hard at work, leading up to Mother’s Day, making their magnetic and decorative pieces to bring a smile to Mummy’s face and show their love and appreciation.
Happy Mother’s Day and wishing God’s blessings on you all !
The launching of reading month, on May 7th, 2019, was definitely a memorable experience for the students as they waved their books to welcome members of the St. Lucia Bikers Association to read to them.
The theme “The Joy of Reading” came to life – as students listened to the work of a local author, entitled “The Little Brave Boy” .
In an effort to make the lunch break more manageable, a play schedule was also launched, so students can engage in a variety of activities. Included in that schedule, students are expected to make themselves comfortable in any safe spot at the school and spend Thursdays engaging in reading.
If you missed first place, the next best spot is runner up. Two young boys, from FAPS did just that. They placed second in the district for their respective competitions; Dervaj Edward (top left) in the District One Collins Spelling Bee and Jamean Seraphim (top right) for the Hon. Ezechiel District One Poetry Competition.
Our representatives made us very proud. Go team FAPS!
