(ZIZ)– A cultural exhibition was held at the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College displaying a number of historical items.
Students of College were given a glimpse of how their ancestors lived through a cultural exhibition.
The event held in collaboration with the Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park Society and the History Heritage Month Committee, displayed a number of artifacts from the old days of St Kitts-Nevis.
Vice President of Academic and Students Affairs at the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College, Delores Stapleton-Harris explained the importance of this exhibition.
“This is a cultural exhibition; one that embraces our cultural origins and heritage and so we felt that we need to increase our students’ awareness of the culture and African tradition so that they can be holistic in nature and so that CFBC can produce the well rounded graduates that we endeavour to do.”
Chairman of the History and Heritage Committee, Sir Probyn Inniss says he was highly impressed with by the college’s cultural exhibition.
He said, “It emphasizes first of all our theme for this year, with its emphasis on plants. And we have quite a display of the many kinds of bushes as we would say which have been used over the centuries to heal our people and to cure them and to give them relief from almost every kind of condition.”
The theme for the 2014 History and Heritage Month of activities is “Conserving Our Environment Heritage” with special reference to plants.
