About Dominica
A Country Like No Other in the World! by: Thomson Fontaine
D steeped in unparalleled natural beauty, a rich Creole culture, and the friendliest people in the World.
Because of its mountainous terrain, Dominica remained in the hands of the Caribs longer than any of the other Leeward and Windward islands; although Britain and France had agreed to this arrangement in 1748, France broke the treaty and claimed Dominica.
In 1763 Britain won Dominica, but the French recaptured it in 1778 and again by the British in 1783. Finally, in 1805 France sold Dominica to England for 12,000 British pounds and handed it over after first burning down the capital Roseau. From its towering 5000 feet peaks to its gushing waterfalls, hundreds of flowing rivers, azure waters of the sea, and black and white sandy beaches, Dominica offers a unique and diverse experience to all who visits its shores.

      < BACK TO HISTORY CONTENTS THE COMMONWEALTH CARIBBEAN is the term applied to the English- speaking islands in the Carribbean and the mainland nations of Belize (formerly British Honduras) and Guyana (formerly British Guiana) that once constituted the Caribbean portion of the British Empire. This volume examines only the islands of the Commonwealth Caribbean, which are Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, the Windward Islands (Dominica, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Grenada), Barbados, the Leeward Islands (Antigua and Barbuda, St. Christopher [hereafter, St. Kitts] and Nevis, the British Virgin Islands, Anguilla, and Montserrat), and the so-called Northern Islands (the Bahamas, the Cayman Islands, and the Turks and Caicos Islands). To the casual observer, these islands might appear to be too disparate to allow for a common discussion. Consider, for instance, the differences in population, size, income, ethnic composition, and political status among the various islands. Anguilla's 7,000 residents live on an island totaling 91 square kilometers, whereas Jamaica has a population of 2.3 million and a territory of nearly 11,000 square kilometers. The per capita gross domestic product (GDPsee Glossary) of the Cayman Islands is nearly fourteen times as large as that of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Trinidad and Tobago's population is evenly divided between blacks and East Indians, a pattern quite different from that on the other islands, on which blacks constitute an overwhelming majority. Although most of the islands are independent nations, five (the British Virgin Islands, Anguilla, Montserrat, the Cayman Islands, and the Turks and Caicos Islands) remain British dependencies.

    his Command, and for the first time in the history of the The dominica Grammar School, St Mary’s Academy and the Londonderry regional Youth Camp
    The Dominica Grammar School Cadet Corps
    Captain Francis. E .Richards The Dominica Grammar School Cadet Corps was first organized in 1910 during the tenure of Headmaster Skinner. The total strength then was 20 boys, including one (1) platoon Sergeant, and one (1) Corporal. For the next forty (40) years the instructors were drawn from the local Police Force. During that period, the Corps was never legally constituted until a later date. Mr. J.C. Bruney remembers the school population in 1931 to be 64 boys, spread through 2nd, 3 rd th , and 5 th forms. The Cadet Corps comprised 4 sections of 8 cadets, including one Sergeant. Mr. Bruney notes; that the low school population was directly related to the inability of most parents to meet the required school fees, the equivalent of $15.00 per term. The Headmaster’s salary was the equivalent of $960.00 (200 pounds sterling) per annum, plus a furnished residence. During the 1936 to 1945 era as a Cadet, Mr. Eric Watty recalls that recruits were required to be of sizeable stature and were selected from forms 3, 4, and 5. The uniform of the day was Australian bush hats, white shirts, black belts with brass buckles, white trousers, and black shoes. 33 obsolete Boer War rifles were issued for arms drill on ceremonial occasions. The “outstanding boy” at school led the march at Kings Birthday Parades, and Empire Day, under the watchful eyes of Police Parade Commander, Major Hill.

    Carnival development through the years
    By Raymond Lawrence Persons who remember Carnival in the 1950's and early 1960's would remember all different types of costumes associated with Carnival such as 'sensay', 'cowboys' and 'sooswell soowi'. There were also those which are hardly found in Carnival today such as Indians and Wob Dwiyet bands. Of course other aspects of Carnival such as 'la po kabwit' and steel band features prominently. These were the two main types of music on the road. One major Carnival event in those days was the Float Parade on Carnival Sunday afternoon at the Windsor Park. Business places and various organizations would build very creative and attractive floats with some special theme. The trucks or trailers used for these floats were so well covered that you couldn't even see the driver. Floats would also come into town from the rural areas with the participants on the floats singing some Carnival songs to 'la po kabwit' rhythms. Carnival band presentation were always spectacular and band organizers went all out to ensure that costumes were well designed and representative of whatever theme they were depicting. The categories of judging then were usually historical, original, and advertising. The Thunderbirds of Newtown started organizing bands many years ago and has always staged impressive presentations.

    Politics of Dominica
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
    Dominica has a Westminster-style parliamentary government, and there are three political parties: The Dominica Labor Party (the majority party), the Dominica United Workers Party, and the Dominica Freedom Party. A president and prime minister make up the executive branch. Nominated by the prime minister in consultation with the leader of the opposition party, the president is elected for a 5-year term by the parliament. The president appoints as prime minister the leader of the majority party in the parliament and also appoints, on the prime minister's recommendation, members of the parliament from the ruling party as cabinet ministers. The prime minister and cabinet are responsible to the parliament and can be removed on a no-confidence vote. The unicameral parliament, called the House of Assembly, is composed of 21 regional representatives and nine senators. The regional representatives are elected by universal suffrage and, in turn, decide whether senators are to be elected or appointed. If appointed, five are chosen by the president with the advice of the prime minister and four with the advice of the opposition leader. If elected, it is by vote of the regional representatives. Elections for representatives and senators must be held at least every 5 years, although the prime minister can call elections any time. Dominica's legal system is based on English common law. There are three magistrate's courts, with appeals made to the Eastern Caribbean court of appeal and, ultimately, to the Privy Council in London.
