Seychelles promoting the use of the Kreol language

Seychelles promoting the use of the Kreol language ( The Seychelles Festival Kreol has once again exhibited that young Seychellois and adults alike have indeed mastered the use of its Kreol language through a series of academic activities.

On the first day of the Festival and in the presence of Mrs. Merida Delcy, Education Minister Macsuzy Mondon, Tourism&Culture Minister Alain St. Ange, Principal Secretary Benjamine Rose, and Mrs. Penda Choppy (Director Lenstiti Kreol), school children participated in both the finals of the Kreol Public Speaking Competition and the Kreol Quiz Competition, which for the third time, also included an adult category.

The Kreol Public Speaking Competition is opened to all young Seychellois including District Youth Club members. The aims of the competition are to give young people the opportunity to carry out research in Kreol and on the Kreol language, to discover the beauty of the language, and to achieve mastery of it.
The teams were judged on their proper use of the language, speech delivery, justifications of theme, and support for arguments brought forward.

After a 15-minute-long debate per team on their chosen theme, the jury allocated the first prize to Beau Vallon Secondary School followed in the second place by English River School, and third place to Plaisance Secondary School.

Prizes were also awarded to the best chairman, best speaker, and for best speech delivery. All participating schools were also awarded a certificate.

The aim of the inter-school quiz competition is to lead children to appreciate the rich values inherent in the Kreol language and culture.

Questions asked were based on the Kreol language and Kreol literature, riddles, proverbs, beliefs, culture, Kreol expressions, and general knowledge.

Out of the three schools participating in the finals, Pointe Larue Secondary School received the first prize, followed by Praslin Secondary School, and Beau Vallon Secondary School in the third position.

The adult category was won by a team of four residents from the Cascade district. Their opponent was Grand Anse Praslin district who came out second.

Both activities start early during the year with an eliminatory stage and pre-selection, culminating to the finals during Festival Kreol.
