Girls’ High after RBTT Young Leaders crown again

Defending champions of the RBTT Young leaders programme, the St Vincent Girls’ High School, are aiming to make it five successive wins in a row, and with their exciting launch last Friday, they seem on course to do just that.{{more}}

The young leaders kicked off their 2007-2008 programme with much flare at the school, under their theme: “Broadening Horizons by Crossing Boundaries.”

The launch featured poems, reggae dance, Latin dance and the modeling of attire from nine Caricom Single Market and Economy (CSME) countries.

Featured speaker Reverend Elton Watson spoke about building relationships with each other. Watson said that establishing relationships is no easy task, especially building lasting ones. Watson told the large gathering that they are different in many ways to the opposite sex, in the way they think and react to certain situations. The Reverend said that one’s identity begins taking shape from the home. “If you don’t know who you are, then you are going to be in serious trouble,” he said.

Reverend Watson urged the students to practice self control at all times. “Remember that there are consequences for your actions and reward for your good actions,” said Watson.

Acting Headmistress Bronty Williams said that the theme of this year’s young leaders programme seeks to foster closer relations between the neighbouring Caribbean islands. Williams took the opportunity to commend the young leaders for the work they have been doing so far and wished them all the best in the upcoming year.

Former Calypso King Grantley “Ipa” Constance performed his song “One Caribbean nation” with the young leaders. The day was capped off with performances coming from Bomani and Skarpyon.

The theme for this year’s RBTT young leaders programme is: “Bridging the Gap, Building Relationships for a Better Tomorrow.” President of the young leaders is Karissa Clarke.
