Monday, October 16, 2006 – Two recently hosted anti-litter school marches in Soufriere and Castries have emphasised the need for more grown-ups to appreciate environmental cleanliness.

Directed by the Saint Lucia Solid Waste Management Authority, the activities centred around school children walking through public areas carrying anti-litter placards.

Information and Education Manager Emlyn Jean said schools have given steady support over the years.

“The marches mark the beginning of clean-up activities - an attempt to get students involved in activities where they encourage others to keep their communities clean. This year, for the first time, we actually went to two communities. The match was usually held in the Castries area, but then we decided to take it to the south as well.”

25 schools in Castries participated in the anti -litter march which started at the Vigie Multi-purpose Court. The schools culminated their advocacy on the Derek Walcott Square with a short ceremony, which included several dramatic presentations, capturing the theme “For health, for preservation, let's clean up the nation”.

Ms. Jean said the most impressive schools will be rewarded based on the adjudication of the panel of judges who was on hand for the event on Friday, 13th October.
