The week continued on that high note as with a Cultural Fair where associates were privy to some of the customs and foods from the different countries of their fellow associates. Some even took it a step further and had music and their cultural wear on display.

Wednesday started off with associates displaying their "Spirit to Serve" the local community by journeying to the Washington Archibald High School, which is a recipient of some of the St Kitts resort's efforts towards ensuring our future hospitality experts are provided the proper facility conducive to learning.

For lunch associates were treated to the Executive Team’s culinary expertise as they took over chef’s duties and served up a barbecue extravaganza.
