Normally these sports meets are held at the La Fargue Playing Field, but this year all PRIMARY schools were asked to use the grounds at Reunion, while Choiseul Secondary has access to the La Fargue Playing field on Friday this week for their sports meet. Question, who authorised this discremination? What's the rationale behind this move?
Back to Roblot School Sports.
Events were in the categories of 85m, 150m, 400m and relays. In age range the atheletes were grouped as under 9, under 11 and under 13.
Eagles dominated the track in the higher aged events. Final scores: Eagles 404 pts. Falcons 327 pts. For the marathon held last week, Eagles 107 pts. Falcons 21 pts.
Ps: Did you vote on the poll?

Prime minister gave the assurance during his address to the nation's youth, at the National Youth Rally on Monday 22nd of February.
Mr King says he is very concerned about the recent spate of crime which has claimed the life of one police officer.
“I shall not allow our gains as a small developing nation after thirty one years of toil to be evaporated by the growing trend of lawlessness, deviant behaviour, disregard for law and order and criminality in our society, there is no room for such alien attitudes in our society and therefore this trend must stop now.”
The prime minister also stated that his government will continue to invest in the Royal Saint Lucia Force, in order to allow law enforcement to restore peace in the country.
“The police supported by the judiciary have been mandated and therefore must undertake their responsibility to protect the citizenry and bring the criminals to justice without fear or favour to anyone what so ever.”
The Saint Lucian leader says he will not cower nor fail in his responsibility, to ensure the safety of all Saint Lucians as guaranteed under the constitution.
In the last poll you were asked " Do you think Choiseul Village will win this year's "Pleu Belle Village" prize?
Here are the results:
Yes --- 71%,
I don't know--- 14%
I don't care--- 0%.

On Tuesday February 16, 2010 residents of Debreuil, Roblot and La Maze lined the road to cheer the atheletes of the Roblot Combined School as they took part in the approximately 10k road maraton. This is an annual event to mark the official opening of the atheletics season of the school.Leading the pack on the up route was Greg Descartes who kept a distance of about 30m between him and his brother Lester Descartes. The pace apperently was too hot for the other runners as they were some 10 - 15 minutes behind. There were various water stops along the route and the principal's vehicle provide the support to those that could not handle the pressure. The Choiseul police took the lead to provide security to the runners from oncoming vehicles. On the down route Lester held a one meter distance lead from his brother and kept this lead to emerge winner. Third place went to Jacob Francis. All three runners belong to Eagles House. The first girl to complete the race is Rebecca Alcee also of Eagles . The school holds its atheltics meet on February 24, 2010.

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Lenten season. It is a movable observance, six and one-half weeks before Easter. It was set as the first day of Lent by Pope St. Gregory the Great (590-604) with the extension of an earlier and shorter penitential season to a total period including 40 weekdays of fasting before Easter. It is a day of fast and abstinence when ashes are blessed and imposed on the foreheads of the faithful to remind them of their obligation to do penance of sins, to seek spiritual renewal by means of prayer, fasting, good works and by bearing with patience and for God’s purposes the trials and difficulties of everyday life. The ashes are used to mark the forehead with the Sign of the Cross, with the reminder: “Remember you are dust, and to dust you will return,” or: “Turn away from sin and be faithful to the Gospel.”
