St. Joseph’s Convent Young Leaders bring message of health

A strong, positive conscious mind leads to a healthy body. A mind and body in sync paves the way for the soul to connect with God.{{more}}

This was just part of the message that the Young Leaders of the St Joseph’s Convent Marriaqua received as they officially kick started their participation in this year’s competition.

This marks a return of the school to the competition after a two-year hiatus, but participants were enthusiastic about the prospects of making a positive impact.

President of the group, Jens Peters, said he believes they will achieve positive results.

“We plan to explain our theme — Live your life holistically: mind, body and soul — fully to everyone,” Peters contended.

On the issue of preparedness, he added that he and his group were working diligently.

“We are going to work hard and show that we can be on top,” he said.

Samantha Browne, coordinating teacher at the school, singled out the school population, immediate community and nation as their targeted audience.

“We want to get everyone involved,” Browne explained. “They are really enthusiastic. they want to win.”

She noted that the school had not placed in the top three before, but commented positively on the values and knowledge that the students gained as a result of being involved in the project. (DD)
