Mexico Bound for the La Baye Convent Girls and “COCOA GALORE”

Girls operating the COCOA GALORE Company of the St. Joseph’s Convent Grenville are aiming to become the company of the year in the final of the Americas Junior Achievement competition when they travel to Mexico in December.

For many years St. Joseph’s Convent St. Andrew has dominated a top spot in the Junior Achievement competition, with their 5th win recorded this year.

The executive members of the company are excited about Mexico and after the Mexican competition the girls hope to continue with their company.

SJC St Andrew’s company ‘Cocoa Galore’ captured first place in the majority of categories of the local competition, this year, including Most Outstanding Business Plan, Most Outstanding Annual Report and Sales Company of Year with profits in excess of EC$7,000.

Products of the group range from, cocoa lip balms and cocoa balls among other products. Teacher Kate Lewis has been one of the driving forces behind the initiative.

Avia Cottin the Vice President of Finance of Cocoa Galore said there are three aspects of the competition in Mexico. The first aspect will be a trade fair where they will showcase their products and be judged; the second aspect will concern the annual report where they will present a summary of what they did in Grenada and their achievements while the third aspect will be the overall judging by a panel of judges.

In their quest to represent Grenada at the competition, the SJCSA girls were appealing for assistance in overcoming the major obstacle of cost of transportation. They hoped that support would be forthcoming for their intended departure on the 2nd December to participate in the December 3rd through the 6th event for the Caribbean and South America.

The girls said that they learnt different skills such as organizing, time management, cooperation, teamwork, and how to get along with each other. They hope to do their best in Mexico.

Twenty companies from across the region will compete for best company of the year. The SJCSA delegation will comprise President, Kaylee Andrew, Reanna Neptune, Head of Marketing Avia Dottin, VP of Finance & Teacher Kate Lewis.
