ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Class Four students of the St George’s Primary School observed the start of culture week in the Virgin Islands with a cultural display of drama, poetry, song and dance at the school yesterday, November 12, 2012.

Children were given a graded assignment to complete based on the islands that make up the Caribbean and were required to look at the culture that existed on each island including the dress, food and festivals among other things.

Class Four teacher Mrs Denita Cooper said the students also brought samples of the foods representing the different islands and also donned some of the dresses worn on the individual islands.

The students, she related, were very excited about their participation in the activities as they were now given an opportunity to do some drama and role playing and were also happy about representing the various islands.

Some of the countries they represented included the Virgin Islands, Dominica, Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, St Vincent and the Grenadines among others.

“Parents were very much involved in the presentations,” she added, as some of them came to help the children to dress, took pictures and also helped to set up Power Point presentations that the children used as part of their display. “It was an excellent presentation.”

She related that the school also had a special event planned for Friday November 16, 2012 as well where students are also expected to wear their cultural garb again then.

St Georges’s Primary also has a Bazaar scheduled for next week while the activities that took place yesterday were part of an annual effort to showcase Culture Week at the school.

      That kind of thinking and those kinds of comments is part of what is keep this place down. Maybe you need to go monitor some of the classes at St. Georges and Cedar. That might help to uplift your ridiculous and negative thinking into something positive that might help you in your life.
