SMA 4-H Club continues efforts to preserve the environment

The Saint Mary’s Academy 4-H Club International is continuing its efforts to achieve its environment-friendly goals.

Students and teachers of the Saint Mary’s Academy (SMA) 4-H club International hosted its annual Green Day ceremony with a difference at its weekly Google classroom club meeting on Thursday 27th January, 2022

President of the Saint Mary’s Academy 4-H Club International, Donte Augustine, wants all members to maintain a healthy environment for their future and that of generations to come. He also commended the boys of the school, particularly the 4 H Club, for emphasizing the importance of maintaining a healthy environment.

He praised the members for taking the preservation of Dominica’s environment seriously and sharing in the responsibility. According to Augustine, “The Commonwealth of Dominica is a small island developing state located in the Caribbean region; we have been branded as the Nature Island for our unspoiled natural beauty and biodiversity. Unless we preserve our blessed environment given to us by God, we would not have this Nature Isle in years to come. Your brothers, your sisters will live in an environment that is not as beautiful as this.”

Augustine submitted, “Every one of us has a part to play to ensure that our country survives another 1200 centuries.”

He encouraged all members to make central in their lives the caretaking of their surroundings as what they do can either impact negatively or positively on the environment.

This Saturday the club will continue its celebration with a hike to Boeri Lake and around Fresh Water lake in observation of National Green Day.

    Mr. Donte Augustine must have fallen asleep at the wheel of his environmental vehicle, and he is unable to see the conditions of all those communities in Dominica; with 98% now resembles Cape Town South Africa and Port Au Prince Haiti. How would Augustine go about cleaning up these communities? We have illegal aliens coming into Dominica on a daily basis and spreading like butter on a loaf of bread all over the entire country, living in rundown and broken houses without proper sanitation. Doesn’t that speak volume about the environmental issues/problems in Dominica? I could go on unending on this nonsensical topic which has no real directions,

    Another distraction and I’ll tell you why later. But before I do so; what exactly is going to be targeted? “Everyone of us has a part to play to make sure our country survives another 1200 centuries.” Now, how do we do that? Where are the Arawaks? The way in which this Dominica is going and the direction in which it’s been heading; we may not be here that long before the Chinese wipe us off. But on the issue of the environmental “whatever,” one has to look more broadly in terms of the “survival” of a country. There is the political environmental system; the religious environmental system; the legal polluted environmental system; The law enforcement environmental system; etc, etc,. The sweeping of the yard and the dredging of our rivers, the tidying of our dirty sidewalks and the annual “Earth Day” is insufficient for the sustainability and survival of a country. Rivers are below their normal levels in Dominica. Do you know why? Do you know the culprits? We need a change in Gov.
