January 4, 1999 - Education Officials gathered Monday to launch a book of Tribute for Sister Marie Claire Joseph, who has given over 25 years of outstanding service at the St. Joseph’s Convent. tribute.jpg (43440 bytes)Among those present at the official press launch (left to right) Madame Justice Suzie d’Auvergne  member of the St. Joseph Convent School Board,   Parliamentary Secretary Hon. Michael Gaspard, Education Minister Hon. Mario Michel and Vice Principal of the School Felicia Mc Farlane.

On arriving into St. Lucia in 1973, Sister Claire started off as a graduate teacher at the St. Joseph’s Convent, in English Language, Literature and Art. In 1982 she was appointed as principal of the school and continued to serve in that capacity even after her official retirement in 1994. The time has now come for Sister Claire to move on as she has been recalled by the Cluny Order of Nuns in Rome to take up another assignment. She will leave St. Lucia on January 28, 1999.

An appeal is being made to members of public, particularly past pupils of the St. Joseph’s Convent and other persons whose lives have been touched by her, to come forward to sign the Book of Tribute. "Let her (Sister Claire) know that we appreciate the contribution that she has made to education in this country and the immense effort that she has made in shaping the lives of so many young women today," said Minister Michel.

Leaves from the Book of Tribute are available for signing at the Ministry of Education, Human Resource Development, Youth and Sports, and at various district education offices and selected banks around the island. Persons are asked to note that leaves should be returned to the Ministry by January 16, 1999 so that they can be compiled and presented to Sister Claire.
