The school was judged the best of the six institutions in the finals, gaining 420 points, as activities to mark Tourism Month continued on Tuesday, at the Peace Memorial Hall in Kingstown.

Speaking on the theme “Our Children Talk Tourism: Tourism is Everyone’s Business – Live it, Love, it, Embrace it,” Lowmans Leeward satisfied the criteria of the five judges – Anthony Theobalds, Adriana King, Aldia Gumbs, Pauline Marks and Walter Child.

Coming in second place was the C.W. Prescod Primary School with 381 points, and the Bequia Anglican School was third with 373 points.

The other schools in the competition were the Lodge Village Government School (363 points), Colonarie Government School 354 points) and the Clare Valley Government School (344 points).

The students themselves were entertained following their performances, treated to a dance routine by students of the Lowmans Leeward Anglican School, and Nicholas Bartholomew and Sean Frederick.

The competition was just one of the events staged by the Ministry of Tourism and the St Vincent and the Grenadines Tourism Authority during this month of activities.

Following a special church service on November 4 at the Kingstown Seventh Day Adventist Church, a number of workshops for front- line workers were held between November 6 and 13, and a Tourism Colloquium on November 14.

This event saw participation from members of the Royal St Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force Training School, the St Vincent and the Grenadines Community College Division of Nursing, and the St Vincent and the Grenadines Community College Division of Arts, Science and General Studies.

A Tourism Youth Congress for secondary schools was also part of the month’s activities, with a judged presentation, which was won by the St Vincent Grammar School, with the West St George Secondary coming second, and the Bequia Community High placing third.

Competition took to the Arnos Vale Hard Court for the street twenty/20 cricket competition, which was won by the St Vincent and the Grenadines Port Authority, who beat the Department of Culture in the finals.

The Ministry also hosted a Cultural Village last weekend, which saw performances by the members of the CARIFESTA XI contingent to Suriname and others, as they welcomed the cruise ship Balmoral on its inaugural visit to these shores.

The curtains come down on Tourism Month activities tomorrow night with a cocktail and awards at the Paradise Beach Hotel at Villa.(JJ)
