Bahamas Academy ELC Grandparents Day
February 13, 2013 Filed in: Education
On Wednesday, February 6th, 2013 the students of Bahamas Academy Early Learning Centre invited their grandparents to a morning of beautiful singing and poetry. First, the K5’s welcomed the grandparents, and then the K2’s treated them to a love note attached to a sweet treat. The k4’s then gave a beautiful acrostic of the word grandparents in grand style. Later they were serenaded by the K3’s, followed by another lovely song by Mrs. Valerie Poitier.
Our speaker was the former Coordinator of the Early Learning Centre Mrs. Hermia Brown. She started out with a story just for the children of Little Red Riding Hood. After admonishing our boys and girls to obey their parents and elders and to always stay on the right path, she then addressed grandparents, parents and other visitors encouraging them to enjoy the time they have with their grandchildren. She spoke of the importance of grandparents in molding the lives of their grandchildren. Mentioned was made of how Timothy, companion of the Apostle Paul was greatly influenced by both his mother and grandmother resulting in him becoming a positive influence on others.
Mrs. Brown then called on her granddaughter Ilka Rodgers who recited a poem she wrote for the grandparents. At the end of the program the grandparents were treated to light refreshments and some of them visited the classroom of their grandchild and even shared a story.
