PHILIPSBURG:--- Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth and Sport Affairs will embark on a project, whereby all public schools will be gifted with a mural, incorporating the school’s theme. As a Ministry, it is important that we lead by example in giving back to the community. Hence, all workers within the Ministry ECYS are being encouraged to collaborate by volunteering for SXM DOET especially as it pertains to the Public Schools or other public entities and organizations. The SXM DOET projects will be underway on March 10th & 11th,2017, however, the Ministry’s projects will be on March 11th, 2017.
The invitation is also being extended to the general public where together we can portray what is being depicted in art form. The idea of a mural depicting PEACE, LOVE, UNITY, TOLERANCE or some other strong positive value which can be demonstrated through art will, be relevant for years to come.
Hopefully we can all see the benefit of such a community endeavor and can identify something we can collaborate to execute over the designated days.
We will only be catering to three (3) public schools, namely, Marie Genevieve de Weever, Ruby Labega, and Leonald Conner School. Each school has chosen a theme, namely UNITY, EDUCATION and TOLERANCE.
To register for a project, please sign up at sxmdoet.com. Each school is listed as “Peace Mural” with the school name at the bottom. I would like to encourage the general population and the entire government entity, to volunteer and make this event a success.
For those unavailable to volunteer on March 11th, prepping of the walls will also need to take place on March 5th and 6th, 2017. Anyone interested and available for March 5th and 6th for prepping and priming of the walls can contact 520 0285 for more information on the times.
