(GIS) – The Babonneau Constituency has, for the last three years, engaged its student population in poetry recital competitions at the primary school level.
The competition seeks to foster self-expression, self-confidence, and a number of other skills that will prepare students for life.
This year, the competition took on new meaning when students at the secondary school level performed.
Addressing the gathering was the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries, Physical Planning, Natural Resources and Cooperatives who is also the Parliamentary Representative for the Babonneau Constituency, Hon. Ezekiel Joseph. The minister said events like these serve as an opportunity to expose the talent of those within the constituency.
Babonneau Primary shone brightly at Sunday’s event, capturing first and third place titles. Fond Assau Primary took the second place prize.
Last year’s competition was won by the Balata Primary School. The competition forms part of Saint Lucia’s 41st Independence celebrations.
