Presentation of Language Education Policy and Plan!

Education Officers, Principals, Vice-Principals and other stakeholders gathered for the presentation of the Language Education Policy and Plan which ultimately seeks to fully integrate the Creole/Kweyol Language “Patois” into the school curriculum. Essentially, the intention is to have students be bilingual by the end of primary school and bi-literate by the end of secondary school, ensuring that they are capable of reading and writing in the Kweyol Language as in the English Language.
The Curriculum & Materials Development Unit (CAMDU) of The Department of Education, Innovation, Science, Technology and Vocational Education has secured funding from education partner, UNESCO to plan an Implementation Plan for the application of the Saint Lucia National Language Policy.
Making presentations today were a suite of language specialists and educators like Professor Hazel Simmons McDonald, Dr. Kathy Depradine, Dr. Claudia Fevrier, Ms Angel Caglin and Dr. Melissa Irvine. After the presentation, stakeholders in the room were able to provide feedback and suggestions on the National Policy as it nears its final stages for implementation.
