5-7 March 2006, 23 students from the St. Kitts and Nevis Back
Chat groups and six coordinators went on a field trip to Montserrat.
The St. Kitts and Nevis Coastguard boat took them on the three-hour
trip to Montserrat. While in Montserrat, they visited several
schools, and the radio station, and conduct an island tour including
a visit to the famous volcano. They spread the message of Small
Islands Voice and eco-friendly practices to the students and the
whole population of Montserrat. The trip to Montserrat was a very
interesting and informative one. Not only did the St. Kitts and
Nevis students share their Small Islands Voice and Back Chat activities,
but they were also able to see firsthand the destruction the volcanic
eruptions have done to Montserrat.
the visit the Montserrat Secondary School has made a request to
become involved in Small Islands Voice.
