Celebrating 50 Years of Service

December 5th, 2018 marked the day F.A.P.S celebrated its 50th Anniversary. Although the day is observed on September 23rd each year, the decision was made so that everyone could can be part of the first flag raising ceremony, the opening of the Reading Gazebo and the Reading Room.

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. On November 16, 2018, thanks to Cox and Company, all this changed. Arrangements are in place for tourists to visit the school, learn about our culture and education system, engage in the school greenhouse and interact with selected students who host the visiting group. A very authentic learning experience for students of Grade 3 and loads of entertainment for their guests.
