Wednesday, November 18, 2009 – The administration of the Vide Boutielle Secondary School, says the recently refurbished home economics laboratory and other projects on the school grounds and in the vicinity of the school, have already started impacting positively on the students.

The home economics lab was opened on Monday. Prime Minister Honorable Stephenson King, and Ambassador of Taiwan to Saint Lucia His Excellency Tom Chou, joined the staff and students at the brief ceremony.


Principal of the Vide Boutielle Secondary School, Catherine Leon said the involvement of the Taiwanese Embassy through the Parliamentary representative has borne invaluable fruit to the school.


“The Vide Boutielle Secondary School placed 10th in CXC in St. Lucia. We moved from 17th to 10th place, and we are on our way up. So I say to the Taiwanese Ambassador, that we are very, very thankful. The improvements at our school have caused our students to improve academically.”


The Vide Boutielle Secondary School, located in the Castries North Constituency, is represented by Prime Minister Honorable Stephenson King. Mr. King gave the assurance that additional projects will be undertaken, beginning with the construction of a computer and music lab during the December school holidays.


Prime Minister King thanked the Embassy of Taiwan for providing the much needed finance for the projects.

“I believe a great environment produces great students. Since works began at the school, that has given the students renewed hope. I want to take the opportunity at this time to thank Ambassador Chou and the Taiwanese government for the level of support they have given in transforming La Clery, and giving a much more enabling environment to the students at the Vide-Boutielle Secondary School. I want to thank you Ambassador for that level of support.”


Ambassador Chou expressed satisfaction with the quality of the projects that have been executed thus far and said that he believed that the school would make efficient use of the projects in developing the long term career of students.


A second phase of the project will include the resurfacing of school grounds, and restoration and expansion of the old music room to accommodate a computer and music lab, whilst under the third phase, an annex will be reconstructed into a two-storey building that will accommodate additional class rooms and toilet facilities.
