St. Maarten – Four colored groups of eight students (32) at St. Dominic High School spent the whole day at school attending classes during another 24-hour Lesson-Thon this weekend. The group of 32 IB-1 class students began with the rest of their school mates on Friday morning, but they stayed behind when the others left at 1:15 p.m. to follow a special program that lasted until 7:30 a.m. on Saturday. During that time they forced themselves to stay awake to earn points for their colored houses for the fun of competition.

The program started off with a mascot competition which served as a pep rally in which each colored houses displayed their house cheers and designed mascots. Once the regular school day ended the students had activities like an HIV/AIDs workshop, cooking, English and Spanish classes, Zumba, swimming and hiking, video editing, science and music and more. Thirty additional students also attended to support the participants and organizers of the Lesson-Thon. They were supervised by staff, parents, and the Red Cross.
“The school would like to express its sincere gratitude to all sponsors, students, parents, staff members, PTA and the wider community for supporting the students in this unforgettable event. A more detailed report will follow in the next edition of Teen Times,” a release from the school’s principal Jose Sommers stated.
