March-past cancelled in interest of student’s safety says Min of Education

DSC students marching at the event

Acting Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development, Chandler Hyacinth, has explained that the decision to not allow students to march was mainly taken because of the weather conditions, the sogginess of the ground and the interest of students’ safety.

Dominica News Online (DNO) contacted Hyacinth for comment on a decision by some of the students to do a march past despite the cancellation, by the organizers of that aspect of the national youth rally.

“We were concerned that if during the march past students get wet some of them have to travel far and we were concerned for [their] safety because some areas were waterlogged. If a child got injured, there are still some implications for the Ministry of Education,” the Education Official told our newsroom.

Hyacinth said that she was very much aware of the kind of preparation that was done and knows that students are excited about the national youth parade from the practices and viewing of the performances.

When asked if the Ministry of Education would allow students to march later on during this independence season, she said decisions will be made based on the conditions at the time and she cannot predict what will be done in the future.

Hyacinth said that for next year’s youth rally, plans will be put in place for the possibility of bad weather during that time.

    Why didn’t the government cancel all events that day if there was inclement weather… After they got the spotlight, they called off the rally because they wanted the prepare the venue for the OECS Pageant. Simple as that.

    I do reach DSC and not understand that… i have commonsense.

    Weren’t there people making speeches and the kids had to stand there and listen? When the time came to display their talents after much practice you are concerned about their safety. Shame on all those who disappointed the kids then you all will turn around and say they cannot be relied on. Congratulations kids.

    Dear Ministry of Education,
    These “internet teens” are not like we used to be. You can’t just cancel stuff on them just like that after they have practiced. That approach only makes them defiant. You have to explain to them in advance, why you are cancelling and give them an alternative. A new marching day perhaps? As a parent having to deal with these situations all the time I am telling you, you did it wrong.

    Let’s see it that way

    One of the children slip and broke their leg
    It would have been another story

      Real frivolous excuses from the DLP lapdogs. Don’t leave your house because a vehicle can run into you if you venture outside. Stop trying to justify the indefensible. The students defiantly marched and proved their point beyond doubt. The conditions were not that bad to cancel the much anticipated March. Only Skerrit’s lackeys will give credence to this poor and ill- thought-out decision commonplace with Skerrit and his obedient disciples.

    Who from Dominica is responsible for sending over 40 Haitians to SKN from Dominica ? Is this an election stunt or is it in the interest of the Labour Party in SKN or Dominica or that of the ruling Unity Party? Stop you all dirty ways and remember God doesn’t like ugly.

    It was raining two days straight prior to the youth rally. Roads were blocked, rivers and drains over flowed. This weather you can say was raining cats and dogs yet you all allowed children… children to go to school in that weather! Why didn’t you all call off school then. You still allowed them to go.
    Now this light rain was no excuse to cancel the rally when in past years they allowed students to march in the rain.
    The pm should have listened to his students the future. They wanted to march so let them march, they were bawling their lungs off demanding that they wanted to march knowing the condition of the weather. He should have given them what they wanted so you mean to say no one has ever walked on wet grass before or a wet road? Smh

    It’s clear as day that you all are making excuses for Skerrits unpreparedness. 1) If inclement weather was the cause, then it’d be cancelled well in advance. 2) Rain doesn’t stop the event, we march regardless as in past years. If it’s too heavy, we wait it out. Mud is not an issue because they are marching and if it was that’s more telling on the grounds keep of the stadium. Nevertheless the footage doesn’t reflect that. 3) At the time of the announcement, there was no rain and the sun was out and shining, rendering the entire excuse as false. 4) Skerrit came late and instantly violated protocol. Disrespecting the students.

    Shame on the MoE for trying to lie for this man but many of us are wise to the nonsense going on. Unprofessional and disappointing that they’d go this far to justify the act. Keep bootlicking for your living.

    Lies, lies and more lies. I have marched and seen students marched in rain many times. The weather pattern is normally the same from year to year. Chandler, you should be ashamed of yourself, you were all mixed up because you were lying. The students were sitting there from 8 a.m, the PM arrived late and in the end tried to remind the students that “he runs things in Dominica!”

    I feel bad for the children because they worked real hard practicing for that. In fact just before PSS students left for Roseau this morning they were seen at Borrow square practicing. But God works in ways we don’t understand because I didn’t want my children to participate in that nonesense. Why should our children whose future Skerrit and Savarin have destroyed find it in them to salute them for the last time? I know Skerrit took the decision to boycott these children since he knows he destroyed their future while he prepared a bright future for his children but I must admit that it was devinely appointed.

    Bravo, Mr. Linton! You stepped up to the plate and saved the day for our most precious resources, our children. True patriots always rise to the occasion. They heal not hurt. Mr. Skerrit wounded the children’s emotions and you, Mr. Linton, came to their rescue and healed those hurt feelings. Your intervention was a display of astute and mature leadership before the whole nation. Skerrit should bow his head in everlasting shame.

      Continue to promote lawlessness, as you blindly support stupidity. The government is the only institution on island that can decide on wether children should march and a decision was taken not march. We now have a new problem in Dominica very rude children lacking discipline, and it is going to get worse. Fault the government for calling off the march but it was their call and the children should have accepted it even if they were upset. For the UWP and its leaders to support such rude behavior is indeed worrying. Do you believe that these students will be all humble and law abiding under a UWP government (if that ever happens). Remember you can only reap what you sow.

        A new problem? A new problem you say. Where have you been these past 20- 25 years? The march was called off because the PM wanted to be somewhere else, like the ground breaking of a certain hotel in the Roseau Valley. In short, the youth were abandoned. That did it did rain but not as much as let on. The grounds were walk able as i myself have marched in mud and plenty dust in my youth in high school. Stop making excuses for nonsense. I am fed up of you people making nonsense excuses for grown people who cannot push the envelope and do more for our country. Sooner or later the youth will make their voices heard. Play with them still.

    No excuses for Dr. Smell-E-Dick. Total disrespect for the children so they showed the fake Dr. who really run things. Because you tired from a night of bon-temp and running late is not an excuse to walk out on the children. Now take that in your AS. God bless Lennox who just happened to be the right place at the right time to show how much of a statesman he is. A true patriot and visionary to respond so elegantly. The children should never forget.

I marched under rain and have seen many students marched under rain also. The PM wanted to reiterate that “he runs things in Dominica”. Thank you for posting.

    I find it strange the MOE was not concerned about the children’s safety yesterday (the day before the rally). The weather was much worse and they had students rehearsing in the pouring rain in the water logged Windsor Park Stadium Moments before the decision was taken today. Those same students were allowed to perform in the rain, even rolling on the ground and some students were on stilts. Where was the concern for safety there. Honestly I don’t see how marching across the field with no rain or even light drizzle would pose a problem. I really expected a better excuse. Many more schools were prepared to go on to the field and March, but they were barricaded by an ambulance and other vehicles. The scouts and Cadets opened the Rally and they were expected to close it by drilling and their usual March through the streets of Roseau. How can you tell a Cadet not to drill because of rain? They are trained for occasions just like this! This is not about politics it is about…

    I guess if the children studied for an exam and the exam was cancelled, they would enter the exam room and do the exam. We continue to promote and encourage lawlessness in Dominica at all levels. The ministry took a decision, some might disagree but it was their call and it should be respected.

A lot of the education officers wash their hands and had nothing to say when skerrit made that decision. As a matter of fact I know of 2 education officers who were telling the children to March, don’t worry , just March. So stop being partisan Anon. And find sources with credible information.

    Lennox Linton looked ‘cock-a-hoop’ standing there taking the salute of a bunch of rebellious children all for political expediency. However, Mr Linton should be worried that he encouraged this behavior whereby compromising the health and safety of the children involved and i hope that there is provision within the laws on the grounds of health and safety that can take him and other members of the opposition involved, to task for their involvement.
    The organizers of the event made a decision to curtail the march-past after assessing the situation based on health and safety, due to the condition of the ground, it wasn’t Mr Linton’s and other opposition members call to encourage the children to march anyway. If i were a parent of the children involved, i would be pursuing my own legal action against Mr Linton and the other opposition members involved.

    The last i checked Dominica is in a tropical marine climate and rainy days in a year may outnumber dry days. The only things that should stop a match is strong winds, heavy prolonged showers and lighting. The kids have demonstrated true patriotism while our leaders behave like a bunch of whimps. Where in Dominica that does not have soggy ground? That is the dumbest excuse i have ever heard. No wonder our policemen ran home during maria we are not only cultivating beggars but whimps. It had been rain2 for a few days so obviously you would have known the ground would be wet so why not postpone. Secondly there is a met office that gives weather forecast so we should know weather conditions for day so we either postpone to later time or date. The country is really ran by a Jack As. My advice to the students of Dominica tbe future of this country is yours to have so if you guys sit by and watch one man mess yall future up then you have yourself to blame.

    Chandler, that is all rubbish!
    You should be ashamed to talk that bull; I was born in Dominica in the village of Wesley; Dominica is a tropical island where while it rain everyday, the sun simultaneously shine.

    I can tell you I lived in Europe, and know what is termed “sogginess,”  whereas there are people in Dominica less intelligent than you who may take your nonsense  for granted; learn what the term sogginess means:

    It simply means heavy wetness; it is the condition of containing or being covered by a liquid (especially water).

    There is no mystery to that; Roosevelt must have told you to stop the event!

    Temperature in Dominica range from 70-84 degrees; humidity 75% daily!

    Normal barometric pressure is typically around 101.325 kPa / 1013.25 mbar / 760 mmHg / 29/921 inHg. Pressure rarely increases or decreases more than 1 inch of mercury (3.386 kPa / 33.86 mbar / 25mmHg) above or below the 30-inch mark.

    When asked if the Ministry of Education would allow students to march later on during this independence season, she said decisions will be made based on the conditions at the time and she cannot predict what will be done in the future.

    Hyacinth said that for next year’s youth rally, plans will be put in place for the possibility of bad weather during that time.

    Were we born big and stupid? What are those two paragraphs from the ministry of education suggest?

    Is she saying that although she is unable to predict the future, and nobody can, that this was the first time that there has been inclement weather during the November independence celebrations? Or is she just happy to reactive as opposed to being proactive?

    In recent times this administration has made several faux pas which is going to work against them. The mood of the electorate has changed and it has trickled all the way down to the youth. Take heed Labour administration. People sick of ya’al.

    Lies lies and more lies. The sun was bright, shining even. Why isnt anyone talking about the vehicles that tried blocking the entrance to prevent us from entering the fields and marching, almost running us over in the process?! Authoritarianism !

      Dear student, as a teacher and a parent to one 15 year old 5th former young girl who is hurt as well as many others, I support you 100 percent.

    If you were so concerned about safety why make them come to the rally in the first place? Was rain not falling since yesterday, was the PM et al not walking on the wet grass in Wesley for the International Airport? Selective safety, we won’t be fooled.

    So this is the first time it has rained in Dominica over Independence Day weekend? This is the first time children – or anybody else – get wet because it has rained? After 41 years of Independence, the Ministry of Education JUST NOW thinks that they will have to plan for rain in the future?

    What a crock!

    So why wasn’t the entire event cancelled, Rosalie river is over the bridge. Why let them come out in the first place?
