Interact club of St. Martin School hosts successful awareness walk
A number of students of The St. Martin Secondary School, of the newly formed Interact Club, members of the Rotaract Club of Roseau and Rotary Club of Roseau took to the streets of Roseau for an awareness walk on Saturday March 17th.
Speaking with President of the Interact Club of the St. Martin Secondary School Ms. Kerlicia Walsh says, the walk was all about tolerance and accepting other cultures in our country.
Ms. Walsh says she joined the Interact Club because she loves helping people, which is one of the aims of the club so she fits in perfectly.
Past President of the Rotary Club of Dominica Ms. Auriel Roberts says, the recently charted Interact Club of the St. Martin Secondary School which consists of persons between the ages of 12-18, is the grand child of the Rotary Club.
Ms. Roberts said she was pleased that many of the students woke up very early to be on time for the walk, and were all wearing the club’s official t-shirt.
She said there were other students who showed interest in the walk, but because they live out of town transportation proved problematic, but applauded all those who tried to make it.
Ms. Roberts says the new group will be taking on a number of fund raising projects throughout the year, which they will be using for activities and helping other people.
The walk started from Virgin Lane in Roseau onto Bath Road, across to Cork Street then onto Independence Street, then proceeded to Morne Bruce via Bath Road and Kingshill, where they had some snacks and socialized before heading back to town.
The walk received sponsorship from; The Dominica Brewery, Josephine Gabriel and Company Limited, Springfield Trading, Country Style Bakery and Lindo Mart.
