DCHS Strong and Moving Forward

Dominica Community High School Term I and II in Review

DCHS Strong and Moving Forward

Category 5 Hurricane Maria wreaked havoc on our island. Our school was certainly not spared. Our roof was compromised, yard filled with debris, animals looted and documents damaged. We, however, refused to be knocked out.

This year we worked doubly hard to bring our school back to its former glory. Cleaning began immediately with the help of staff, parents and students – past and present.

The school also received timely donations of relief supplies from the Credit Union League, the Methodist and Anglican churches, the Government of Dominica, Dominica Association of Teachers, and Mrs. Jennifer White and family, past students “Joey Poks and Ian James” sent monetary contribution, just to name a few. We are grateful.

A few parents and students contributed regularly to our rebuilding efforts. Mention must be made of the family of Oliver Alexander and Jerry Alfred.

Fun activities also ensued.  A delightful Spanish Day celebration which featured a mini restaurant was held in November. A portion of the funds raised was used to purchase cleaning materials for the school and the balance was donated as a monetary contribution towards the school’s daily expenses.

The Christmas spirit was definitely alive at our school. A delectable Christmas lunch by staff and parents was served to students. Games and the singing of carols complemented the occasion. This event ended with the forever sort after Christmas pinata.

Jerniah Copiel and Maitei Registe represented our school at this year’s Youth Parliament, and Chester Durand took part in athletics. Their contributions were well presented and greatly appreciated.

As the final term for this academic year has just begun, there is much to be done still. With God’s continued guidance and protection DCHS will accomplish much more and will survive.

DCHS Standing Still! Standing Strong!
