Through dishes like ackee and salt fish from Jamaica, oil down in Grenada and callaloo soup from Trinidad, members of the Bishop’s College Young Leaders were able to give other students in their school a bit of Caribbean culture.{{more}}

According to president Hadassah James, the food of the Caribbean is tasty and this is a way of taking those students who have never traveled to these territories to get a taste of the culture through reading and their cuisine through their dishes.

James said their next endeavour will be a cultural show and local wear on Saturday March 19 at the school to help raise funds for a trip to Martinique. The Young Leader president said that they chose a French-speaking island because English-speaking countries should not let a different language hinder integration.

Still on a note of unity, co-ordinating teacher Khadine John said she is pleased with the Young Leaders programme since it is teaching the members to work together. She said students who usually don’t talk to each are now friends.

All the funds raised from the activities will go towards the St.Benedict’s Hospital and Day Nursery in Georgetown.
