Teachers, parents and students celebrated a special occasion at the Yo Creek Sacred Heart RC School as they inaugurated their very first monument.

“I identified the project and I said I need to do one but then we said we need to do a big one not just a small one but one that will identify our school, a symbol of unity, a symbol of strength and a symbol of beauty tour school.”

And once that plan was made concrete, the work began to find sponsors for the project. The response from business establishments that the school identified was favorable and slowly but surely the school began to receive the support needed.

After a few short months, the school today boasts of a new flag monument that serves as much more. Apart from hoisting the school flag and national flag for the first time, the students also shared some of their talents with students and parents.

“We have a costume that on Mondays and Fridays we have presentation in our school so this will serve the purpose.”

“Well, there are a lot of projects in our school and the teachers have also identified the building of a fence, we need to fence this area because we have a street in the middle of our two schools and vehicles pass around and we are afraid  that something might happen to our children and that on weekends the young ones will come to vandalize our school but so far everything is working very well right now.”

There are 181 students at the school who are now benefiting from the project.

“I would like to give a big thank you to all the business community and those who came but through this medium I would like to give them a big thank you for contributing financially to our flag monument.”


The project cost the school over five thousand dollars to complete.
