The president of the Community, Daniel Gibbs, its first vice-president, Valérie Damaseau, President of the Tourist Office and her vice-president, Alex Pierre, participated, last Friday, in the Saint-Martin Junior Minister 2019 Program, at Orleans district college.
Since its launch in 2013, the tourism module taught at the college has attracted many students on a voluntary basis. This year, 80 students have registered, which is considerable. The authorities plan to extend the system to other classes and establishments of the 1st and 2nd degrees.
"It is a real pleasure for me to see that the Tourism module initiated by the Collectivity, the National Education and the Tourist Office, is taught to the 4th and 3rd pupils of the colleges of Quartier d'Orléans and Mont des Agreements, and above all to note that many students have benefited from this education since its institution in September 2013 ", said the president, who also said that this training was" a great success ".
“I would like to thank National Education, represented by Michel SANZ, through whom I also greet our Rector of the Academic Region, Mostafa FOURAR, who accompanies us and supports our initiatives.
And then, how not to quote Ms. Evelyne FLEMING, whose quality of investment with Saint-Martin students is exceptional and who, thanks to her pugnacity, has greatly contributed to the creation of this tripartite training. I would also like to acknowledge the involvement of the teachers who run these courses ”.
The middle school students participated in thematic debates on tourism under the benevolent gaze of the Jury, which was able to appreciate their speaking.
"The election of the Junior Minister 2019, which is organized as part of a Caribbean initiative led by the CTO (Caribbean Tourism Organization), represents a considerable asset for Saint-Martin, our youth and the influence of our tourism", concluded the president.
