Monday 4 & 11/ 04/2011- Vide Boutielle Secondary School
We headed to VBSS twice on the legendary BLUE BUGGY. :) The students are always amazed that the team and all the equipment can fit so comfortably in the vehicle. It is a true testimony of how size can be a true deceiver. LOL!! We arrived at the school and got assistance from the students to carry equipment. We got off to a bit of a late start on both days, as we awaited the regular morning devotions and settling into the hall. Generally students were attentive and quite reactive to the information shared on STI, Emotions and Dental care. Mr Bernard Fanis was present on the second day for recording. Students enjoyed coming up and sharing thoughts on beauty & receiving prizes. Very energetic bunch. STAY BEAUTIFUL VBSS!!

We were moved to share the message of self love and respect with deeper emphasis at GC, after our experience at Bocage. We all were touched by Ms Montoute's gesture. She apologized to the students on behalf of all adults in their life, that probably didn't do enough to elevate them. You could have felt a genuine sense of interest throughout the presentation. The message of controlling your emotions, dental awareness and being careful of all the STI's out there, did inspire some thought and concern in the students. There acts of appreciation after the presentation was also significant. The principal to was very happy and express her full support for the endeavour. THANK YOU GC!!

21/02/2011 - Babonneau Secondary (pt 2)
Another BEAUTIFUL day. On the eve of independence, we met with the higher forms at Babonneau Seconday. Dr. Matthew was able to get some great footage that says much more than I can put in words. This clip is seen above. Here is a video of one of the beginning of our presentation at Babonneau. Enjoy!
Wednesday 16/02/2011- Babonneau Secondary School (part 1)
WI was advised to come to the school twice, because of the difficulty with space. Today we did the lower forms, who were already seated and organized by their teachers when we entered. We thought we were at least 20 mins early, however we were just on time, and once again pressed to set up, however the staff assisted. Our good friend and Headphunker, Mr James (teacher there) assisted by taking some really AWESOME photos. I'd say our best so far :) The students closed their eyes and listen attentive at the beginning of the presentation, particularly to the singing. They were very energetic, and boldly came up to declare their beauty on the mic. We noticed just a small number students trying to discourage one of the MOST handsome boys in the school from saying "I am beautiful', but he forged ahead with courage and that we found admirable. He knows he is beautiful even if others may want to think otherwise and call him fat because he is a little taller and bigger than his classmates. The teachers and vice principal were very happy and also requested bands. Another beautiful day!
Monday 14/02/2011- Leon Hess Secondary School
Upon entering the school we were greeted by light, spiritual showers of blessing from the sky :). We began setting up while students assembled. I became a bit tense about the sound begin set up in time, however some students technicians came to our rescue to speed up the process. The students were markedly attentive throughout the presentation. No one, not even Dr. Matthew, who stood up in the rain to present on STI, allowed the worsening weather condition affect us. Ms. Montoute is a past student of Hess and was really excited and happy to be home. The students were very engaged during and responsive during her dental presentation. The singing also had an impact on the students especially when they closed their eyes. They were given hand bands and bookmarks. It seems like the boys are bolder in declaring their beauty on the mic. Girls we need you to step up :) The principal and a number of teachers expressed how pleased they were about the presentation. One teacher in particular said it was the best assembly. :) Complement! We'll take it.
The rain distracted us form taking more pictures, however here are a few.

Monday 24/01/2011- Choiseul Secondary School
Heading down to Chioseul, although a long way from Gros Islet- was relaxing. We were able to take in the BEAUTIFUL scenery. Despite the rain, we forged ahead as we always do and set up the sound, which functioned at it's peek :) Thank God! Students were protected from any possible rains next to classrooms and under the balcony. We were at a distance in the middle, under what I would call the Gazebo! WOW, what was notable was their attention and evident confidence in declaring their beauty throughout the presentation. Both the boys and girls, at Choiseul Sec expressed their beauty :). We also came bearing gifts for those who were able to come up and say "I am beautiful!" They were appreciative, and the team received a Beautiful thank you from the president of the students council. We felt really blessed and BEAUTIFUL. The vice principal, principal and other teachers assisted throughout and they to expressed their appreciation also. THANK YOU CHOISEUL!
Monday 17/01/2011- Corinth Secondary School
What a lovely experience being at Corinth Secondary. The cooperation of the principal, vice principal, staff and students were all very commendable, like a breath of fresh air. Although heavy showers came down just before our presentation, that didn't deter the team and the school from forging ahead. It was all positive energy. Students were seated, and definitely that helped quite a bit with the focus. They were very attentive and participated through out the presentation and the musical rendition. It was smooth sailing and a beautiful feeling. We still faced some difficulty with the boys saying I Am Beautiful!! :)
