FUNdamental Numeracy and Music Exposé

An Educational Initiative of the NVM Vieux Fort Volunteers

Educational development creates segues into economic prosperity and improved quality of life. This idea espoused was by Sir Arthur Lewis who famously commented that “the fundamental cure for poverty is not money but knowledge”.

The members of the Vieux Fort Chapter of the Volunteer Saint Lucia are dedicated, community-oriented, patriotic individuals who are determined to make a positive impact in Vieux Fort through various projects.

As one of its goals, “The Chapter” aims to provide opportunities that will enable our young people to enhance their mathematics skills. The numeracy month of November provides the perfect opportunity for the Vieux Fort Chapter to host a “FUN-damental Numeracy and Music Exposé” with a focus on FUN. This free event takes place on Saturday, November 12 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Vieux-Fort Square and children of all ages are invited to attend.

Children will participate in a variety of numeracy activities, including treasure hunt, mental math competition, jingle completion, math boot camp, to name a few. These fun numeracy activities will be accompanied by lots of fun entertainment, including a bouncing castle, musical chairs, steel pan music, bookmark making, and art. Participants will receive prizes for their involvement in various activities.
