A release from the RVA said this third annual event, with its theme “Christmas Together,” was organized by teachers and students of the RVA to engage, educate, entertain and feed the people from the surrounding areas, giving them an opportunity to share different culture, music and heritage and interact with other villagers from different communities, while having fun in the process.

The event began with games of dominoes, cards, basketball, followed by a workshop put on by teachers and students of the RVA, then the Christmas meal, with villagers being entertained by live music from the Rose Hall Drummers.

“We at RVA see events like this as way of bringing the different communities together during this festive period; it’s an opportunity for people who cannot afford a proper Christmas, to be involved still and have something to be joyous about,” said Selwyn Patterson, a teacher at RVA and head organizer of the event.

The Richmond Vale Academy is encouraging Vincentian nationals who are interested in learning about Climate Compliance Conference and fighting shoulder to shoulder with the poor, programmes conducted by the school, to contact the school for more details.

The Richmond Vale Academy (RVA) is a registered non-profit organization under the Companies Act in St Vincent and the Grenadines. RVA teaches local and international students about the importance of working together to fight poverty.
