International fun for kids

Many countries were represented earlier this month as the children at Miss Nadine’s preschool celebrated International Day.

They made sushi in Japan, travelled the jungles of Cameroon, looked at the marine life in the Bahamas and made snowmen in Canada.

“The International Day was well attended and enjoyed by parents, friends and the children alike,” said Principal Caroline Ebanks. “Our teachers did a great job teaching the children about the country of their choice through songs, crafts that decorated their classrooms, food and photos. The teachers were able to expose the children to these cultures in an age appropriate way that was also fun and educational.”

The graduating class that studied Japan also collected $178.05 in donations for the Red Cross Japanese relief effort on behalf of the National Council of Voluntary Organisations. The school is a community project 
of the NCVO.
