Police Commissioner Urges Students To Focus On Their Education

On Thursday, 28th June 2024, a team of police officers, led by the Commissioner of Police, Crusita Descartes-Pelius, paid a courtesy visit to the future leaders of Patience Mon Repos Combined School.
There, they met with the Officer in Command of the Southern Division, Acting Assistant Commissioner of Police, Albert Charlery.
Commissioner Pelius engaged the students in a hearty conversation, encouraging them to focus on their education, which she emphasised is their key to success.
The children were utterly delighted by the presence of the police chief, barely able to contain their excitement as some lunged towards her and seized the opportunity to embrace her—encounters which Commissioner Pelius was happy to oblige.
The students were also addressed by Acting Assistant Commissioner of Police Albert Charlery, who echoed similar sentiments to those of Commissioner Pelius. He impressed upon them the importance of being disciplined.
The children were treated to live performances by the skilled saxophonist of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force band, which they thoroughly enjoyed. The day, of course, ended with a sweet treat that the students could not resist!

  1. Here me posting in the middle of the storm… to the police…..why not make a pledge to committing to enforcing traffic laws in and around schools across the island……why not charge parents who find it cool for having toddlers and babies sitting at the front seat of vehicles? Education is more than just sitting in a classroom, it’s about wholistic development of children which includes safety and security! I said so!!

  2. That was really a nice idea for the commissioner and her team to enforce in the children the importance of education. My siblings and I left St. Lucia a long time ago and I can honestly state that education is key.

    From time to time I have ran into St. Lucians living abroad and some of them are not the sharpest tools in the shed and sadly they will not even try to obtain a proper education. In addition, for some strange reason they love to put their ignorance on display by talking without knowledge of the subject matter – I quickly excuse myself during these encounters — no bueno SMH.
