The Convent High School celebrated Geography Week 2012 under the theme “Get Lost …... In Mapping”.  The focus of this year's assembly was on the Nature Isle – DOMINICA.

The Week started off with an assembly led by the 4th Form Geography class [morning group] and a feature Address by former CHS Geography Teacher Ms Lolita Raffoul.  Each day's assembly focussed on a different area of Dominica; as well as a general knowledge quiz.  The response to the daily quiz was overwhelming.

All geography students and teachers were dressed in The 2012 CHS Geography Week T-shirts.

The week ended with a field study tour around the island; starting on the south.
