The top two CPEA performers and their teachers from schools on the Windward side of the island, north of the dry river were recognized for their performance.
The recognition was done through a collaborative effort by the Garifuna Indigenous Peoples of St.Vincent and the Grenadines Inc(GIPSVG Inc.) based in New York and the Owia Sports and Cultural Organisation (OSCO).
OSCO hosted the ceremony held on Saturday, August 12th, 2017 at the Owia Government school on behalf of the members of GIPSVG Inc. who provided the students with back packs containing school supplies and the teachers with Kindle 7 Tablets.
This is the second initiative of its kind by GIPSVG Inc. which has been assisting in the North Windward area through other initiatives since its formation two years ago.
President of GIPSVG Inc. Marcia Sutherland James says the group was happy to collaborate with OSCO, a community-based group in the North Windward area on the venture and looking forward to more collaborations in the future.
