The Secondary Schools’ Environment Preservation Project Competition is now well on its way with 17 schools registered to take part.{{more}}

The project, which is being spearheaded by Coreas Hazells Inc., in partnership with the Ministry of Education, was launched on October 22nd, 2010, at the Peace Memorial Hall.

The competition is limited to students of Forms one, two and three.

The objective of the project is to enhance the knowledge and level of social responsibility of the students with respect to environmental issues, by creating awareness in the early years of life, and by so doing, facilitating the development of an informed citizenry for the future.

The schools were given a list of ten (10) themes from which to choose one. This was done in an attempt to have the students focus on areas which are most relevant to our particular environment.

All project descriptions are to be submitted by April, and judging for the competition will commence in May. Currently, a Project Coordinator is monitoring the progress of the projects and from time to time he reports back to a Coordinating Committee

A release from Coreas Hazells Inc said the participating schools are: Petit Bordel Secondary; Thomas Saunders Secondary; Georgetown Secondary; Girls’ High School; Emmanuel High – Mesopotamia; Bishop’s College – Kingstown; George Stephens Snr.
