Mr. Roach noted, at the Youth Development Division they take youth development very seriously, and 4-H is just one of many programmes they promote.

Former 4-H Coordinator, Mr. Eddie F. Royer, mentioned he is very much delighted to see that the club is alive and kicking to this present day.

It has progressed from when he was Coordinator in 1974 when the Government instituted the 4-H programme.

“4-H is very relevant today, particularly in the whole concept of achievement. So students when reminiscing at some point in their lives, can say this is what 4-H has taught me,” said Mr. Royer.

Other activities included a Show and tell Competition, Quiz Competition, Creative Expression and an exhibition to highlight projects carried out by other 4-H clubs.
