Dental Crash Course

The students of grade 3 and 4 were the fortunate participants in a very engaging and interactive Dental Health Care session conducted by Mrs. Paul and Ms. Arlain on May 18, 2018.

The students enjoyed an informative Powerpoint, watched a cartoon loaded with facts and advice and saw a detailed demonstration on a huge model of the teeth being brushed to reinforce their learning.

Kudos to our super dental care pair! Keep up the great work and we hope you grace F.A.P.S with your presence in the future.

Earth Hour St. Lucia

Lights out from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. on March 24th, 2018 says Cornelius Williams from Caribbean Youth Environment Network (CYEN). This is to show appreciation for Mother Earth by conserving through reduced use of our resources island-wide, for one hour. Earlier during the day (March 24th), there will be a multi-generational race from Pigeon Island to the Cinema at Choc, where everyone will enjoy a big bonfire activity nearby; once again staying away from the use of our non-renewable resource of fossil fuel.  

After the CYEN members delivered their information, they selected a few students to participate in a tree planting activity to bond with Mother Earth! Everyone is invited to do the same; plant a tree, turn off all lights that are not in use and leave a thriving Mother Earth for the next generation.

Too Sweet to be True


 

 

Field Officer and Nutritionist, Melia Depradine, delivered some shocking news to the boys of FAPS on March 14, 2018. Everyone was speechless after finding out how much sugar is consumed by having a soft drink. A student was selected to divide 53 grams of sugar by 4 to discover how much sugar is contained in a seemingly harmless Coca-Cola. An estimated 13.25 teaspoons of sugar! Most of the interactive and informative session was spent talking about the effects of having too much sugar in ones diet.

Here are some of the effects that consuming too much sugar has on your health:

  • It overloads and damages your liver.
  • It tricks your body into gaining weight and affects your insulin and leptin signaling.
  • It causes metabolic dysfunction. Eating too much sugar causes a barrage of symptoms known as classic metabolic syndrome. To name a few, these include weight gain, abdominal obesity, elevated blood sugar and high blood pressure.
  • It increases your uric acid levels. High uric acid levels are a risk factor for heart and kidney disease.

The girls will be having a chat with the nutritionist next Wednesday at the same time.

The principal and staff appreciate the support; a joint effort to get students and parents to be more health conscious, is surely the way to go. Kudos to the Ministry of Health!
