GREAT BAY – The St. Maarten Carnival Development Foundation (SCDF) invites leaders from all schools to a meeting on Tuesday, November 29th 2011 at 7:00 p.m. at the Government Administration Building to discuss their participation in carnival. The meeting is open to primary schools, secondary schools and tertiary institutions because the foundation believes participation from all school levels is necessary to ensure carnival’s continuity.
“With early preparations already underway, the SCDF believes that the schools and parents have ample time to swing into action and involve their student body in the country’s largest cultural manifestation,” SCDF President Stuart Johnson, who is an educator by profession, said.
Johnson added, “Carnival is more than just children dressing in costumes. It’s not about who has the most elaborate costumes, but about our children participating in the name of culture and the experiences they will take away from this participation. So we are looking forward to teachers and school administrations promoting this form of our culture and as SCDF we will support them
and re-enforce their efforts through our school tours.”
“SCDF will do its utmost to continuing fostering a long and healthy working relationship with schools enabling them to participate in Carnival annually. We remain committed and dedicated to this long-term investment into the future and continuity of carnival as it starts with the generation of tomorrow, our youth,” Johnson concluded.
