At our School, there are 4 groups/clubs that your child/ward can choose from to join, to do as an extracurricular activity. We believe in exposing children to as many hobbies and extracurricular activities as possible.
The Young St. Lucian Helpers
The Young St. Lucian Helpers (YSLH), is an environmental club of the Ave Maria Girls’ Primary School. The club was founded on the 11th February, 1996. It is a UNESCO associated club as well as a member of ASPNet. ASPNet means: Associated Schools Project Network and it enables students to work on projects and participate in encounters at the international, regional and national levels in which they share ideas, experiences and views. Presently the co-ordinators of the club are Mrs. Faucher-Joseph, Ms. Wilson, and Mrs. Modeste-Lubin.
Being a member of this club enables the students to show their concern for the environment; humanity, our school, our island, and the earth. It also provides students with the opportunity to learn more about their surroundings and promote environmental awareness daily. This club empowers students to make changes, promote a culture of peace, speak intelligently, show concern for others and to be responsible citizens of St. Lucia. Some of the activities are: observance of international days and years, fund raisers, hikes, hosting of pageants, assemblies and competitions, creating posters, clean up days, and fun outings.

The Ave Maria Girls’ Primary School choir has always been a critical part of the school life of the Ave Maria Girls’ Primary School. During the era of National Schools Choral Singing Competitions, the Ave Maria Girls’ Primary School attained several victories. Since the commencement of the National Schools Music Festival in 2015, the choir has been selected as one of the schools to make a presentation at the final round of the festival held during Nobel Laureate week. Notable performances by the choir include the requiem mass (funeral) for Dunstan St. Omer, and the national Rally in order of the 37th anniversary of Saint Lucia’s Independence.
