This design has been creatively and colourfully done in water colours. Both Samara Burton and Marissa Norris fourth form high school students have worked together on this for young people of Orion Academy and Dominica. Well done to them.
We all wish for Peace because Harmony is not beyond our reach
Thank you so much to Anne Burton,the schools relatively new Principal and Member of the Board of Trustees for helping to have young people of Dominica represented in this Project.
The ethos of the school is to provide a holistic education in small classes. Students are encouraged to work independently and to carry out research and to seek out information for themselves. Orion seeks to develop independent thinkers and also to develop the whole child. Orion is an equal opportunity school and does not discriminate against persons on the basis of race or ethnicity, sex, color, religion or economic status.
The ten green stars, which are the traditional symbol of hope, represent the ten parishes of Dominica. The Sisserou Parrot is the national bird of Dominica and symbolizes flight towards greater heights and fulfillment of aspirations.
