Beau Vallon primary marks special occasions


23-June-2012

Celebrating the 15th anniversary of the school

The day kicked off with a special assembly which was attended by Vice-President Danny Faure, the district’s member of the National Assembly Mirena Souris, a large crowd of fathers, teachers and pupils.

During the assembly, Vice-President Faure addressed the gathering, a gesture which the management and staff of the school appreciated very much.

Long-serving teachers at the school were awarded with certificates of appreciation.
 
The school also took the opportunity to celebrate their achievement in last year's national exam. Pupils who scored an ‘A’ grade in the exam were awarded with a certificate as well as a gift voucher to be spent at the Taurus stationery shop.

All past teachers of the cohort of pupils were awarded a rose which sponsored by Mrs Souris. 

At around 10am, all the fathers present and invited guests gathered in the staff room for a session on fathers’ role in their children's education conducted by Robert Ah-Weng.

Ken Choo, the general manager of Berjaya Beau Vallon Bay Resort & Casino, sponsored a large cake for the celebration.
 
Mr Choo personally delivered the cake to the school and took the opportunity to meet students, fathers and the head teacher. Berjaya Beau Vallon Bay Resort & Casino is currently working on a project with the primary school for the setting up a spice garden under its resort’s “Sustainable Tourism Label” effort.

Mr Choo says that the aim of the spice garden project is to help the Beau Vallon primary school to be the first school to have a “Sustainable Spice Garden Project”. This project will allow the student to learn about sustainability, about the value of plants, and also to learn and develop some basic commercial aspects in life under full supervision of the teachers.

The initial set up cost of the spice garden shall be borne by Berjaya. The day to day care shall be by the school's environment club.

When the spices are ready to be harvested, the school will sell all the harvest to Berjaya. The proceeds from the sale will then be used to "self sustain" the development and activities of the environment club. The spice garden should be ready by September 2012.
