He spoke about technological advancements that would be introduced to schools while also highlighting plans for developing the sports and having dedicated coaches.

“If you want to be competitive in the world you have to make sure you are well-versed in all aspects, whether it be English, Math or Technology,” said the Prime Minister.

Students also had the opportunity to put their own questions to the Prime Minister and they were by no means easy on him. The Prime Minister got quizzed on Value Added Tax, Sports and Education.

Principal of the School, Mr. Martin Hippolyte, said that he and the teachers felt very privileged to have the Prime Minister single them out for a visit. Mr. Hippolyte took the opportunity to speak with the Prime Minister about the challenges that the school faces and was also pleased to learn firsthand about plans to enhance technology and sports.

    I was excited when I saw Sir John for the first time, face-to-face as Prime Minister of St. Lucia and this is exactly what was happening there to our students. It dosen’t matter who were the first set of students to meet with him because they are all our children, so do not pick on the Constituency. BRAVO MR. PM which is the next school. I heard that some students from Anse La Raye are singing for you to come visit them.
