Ujima will also be opening the Charlotte Brookson Academy of the Performing Arts for the 2012/2013 academic year.

President Arrindell says that education is the eternal foundation of a nation’s development.

"The addition of Ujima to the landscape of the nation five years was a plus when we were an island territory. Today, as a country, Ujima is on its way to establishing an academy of performing arts.

"We can only build a stronger nation through education. Sint Maarten as a young country, our future lies with an educated population. Much has been achieved during the past years with respect to the different professionals who have graduated and serve in different positions on the island today.

"These persons did their primary and most of their secondary education on the island before leaving to continue with their studies abroad. We have much to be grateful for and what we have achieved as a nation is still the envy of others throughout the region.

"The quality of our nation’s human resources is easily judged by the number of literate population living on the island. As a people we continue to aspire for further growth and development. Ujima’s new school will be an important asset to our education sector.

"Once again, on behalf of the Parliament of Sint Maarten, congratulations on your fifth anniversary and we look forward to the opening of the academy of performing arts," President of Parliament Hon. Gracita Arrindell said on the fifth anniversary of Ujima on Thursday.
