GREAT BAY, Sint Maarten (DCOMM) – Minister of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports Hon. Patricia Lourens Philip would like to congratulate Sint Maarten Father’s and Grandfather’s on Father’s Day, Sunday June 15.
Father’s day is an opportunity to acknowledge and say thank you for being my dad, and to celebrate the role that father’s and grandfather’s play in the lives of their children and grandchildren on a daily basis.
Father’s serve in key roles in society such as teachers and in other professional areas, and therefore are considered role models.
Fatherhood is a lifelong commitment and a role of serious responsibility.
“I encourage all families to pay tribute on Sunday, June 15 to all men who fill the role as a father. On Sunday, families will come together. We must not forget the dual role that some women also play such as being a mom and dad to their child or children.
“May God bless all of our dad’s, grandfathers, and women who also serve in the role as dad this father’s day,” Minister of Education Hon. Patricia Lourens-Philip said on Friday.
