Countrywide school rallies set for September 15, including Benque Viejo

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez:  Leading up to Belize’s Independence Day on September 21st, schools across the nation traditionally hold a rally, with students fervently waving the Belizean flags, showcasing their pride and unity.

This year, the school rally has been slated for Friday, September 15. The choice of date adheres to the convention of holding the student rally on the Friday leading up to Independence Day. This tradition resonates with primary schools throughout the country.

Earlier, the Benque Viejo branch of the Belize National Teachers Union (BNTU) had voiced concerns. Given that September 15 is also Guatemala’s Independence Day, and Benque Viejo’s proximity as a border town, the branch proposed moving their school rally to September 20.

Yet, recent updates suggest that the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science, and Technology has stepped in, ensuring uniformity in the celebrations. As a result, schools from all corners of the nation, including those in Benque Viejo del Carmen, will participate in the school rally on Friday, September 15, 2023.

Embracing the festive spirit and the essence of national unity, students countrywide are heartily encouraged to exhibit their Belizean pride and patriotism in their schools and communities.
