To mark Commonwealth Day, British High Commission staff spent the morning on Monday 12th March at the Castries Comprehensive Secondary School. Resident British Commissioner, Steve McCready, told students that with over one billion young people living in the 53 member states of the Commonwealth, the organization places great value in its youth as a force for positive change throughout the Commonwealth family. British High Commission staff also held an interactive session with Primary School Social Studies students. The discussion focused on a range of issues important to young people including Commonwealth countries working together to build economic prosperity, celebrating and making the most of the Commonwealth’s diversity, and how Commonwealth members can work together to tackle the effects of climate change. The team was joined by Miss Independence 2018, Kurnisha Augustus, who spoke to students about the Commonwealth theme for this year, “Towards a Common Future”.
