The Young Leaders recently embarked on a number of activities with the intent to promote environmental awareness and conservation.

On Thursday, April 16th, they joined forces with the school’s environmental and heritage clubs to give the compound a well deserved clean up.

The Young Leaders then took to the road on Monday, April 20th, to distribute garbage bins to Stubbs Government and Brighton Methodist Primary schools. The gesture was greatly appreciated by the Headteachers and students alike.

It was another busy day for the Young Leaders on Tuesday, April 21st, when they attended an educational tour at the Diamond Landfill, which was given by Supervisor Kevern Farrell. Following that, they traipsed down to Rawacou Beach and did a good job of ridding it of unsightly garbage and other debris.

More interestingly, they have collaborated with the Solid Waste Management Unit to distribute CDs of an environmental song by local soca artistes Tabia and Skinny Fabulous. So far they have handed out CDs to van drivers at the Little Tokyo Bus Terminal, so that travelers can have a listen and heed the song’s lyrics about keeping the environment clean.

SCDSS Young Leaders Teacher Coordinator Charmaine Deane expressed how proud she is of the students’ commitment and hard work, and believes that they stand a good chance of placing in this year’s competition.(JSV)
