The opposition Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) has proposed a number of measures by means of which citizens can assist this country’s children as they head back to school amid the current COVID-19 crisis.

The measures were outlined in a post on the SLP’s official Facebook page, reproduced below:

How do we raise our children in this changed world, to ensure that their education and emotional wellbeing are not compromised? The following are for your consideration and action:

Donate a laptop/tablet to a child or school

Technicians offer to restore or repair a device for free or at a discounted price

Give WiFi access to children in your community

Offer to print work from a teacher for students without a device

Graduates, volunteer at a school/HRDC to give afterschool lessons, especially in Math & English

Schools, relax the dress code for students

Barbers and hairstylists, offer a free service to a child

Volunteer to assist teachers who now have to prepare for in school and online teaching

Artists, musicians and athletes, volunteer at schools to provide therapeutic activities to provide students with an outlet

Farmers and vendors, donate to schools’ feeding programmes.

The Government, please find the resources to ensure that every child has a laptop or tablet

Bring back the GiNet (WiFi) to all communities

Use the state media (GIS) to teach curricula

This list is not exhaustive, feel free to add your recommendations. If you cannot assist, offer a prayer. If you cannot help, do no hurt – our children require safe spaces and people now more than ever. The task ahead may seem daunting, but know that a Labour Government will always put you first, the people of Saint Lucia. Until such time, let us be that village for our children as they head back to school.
