Fifteen pre-schools from across the country participated in the “Tots in Marine Life – Exhibition 2013”, one of the many activities that were a part of the month-long celebrations, leading up to Fisherman’s Day.

Roxanne Pompey, chairperson of the Education Sub-Committee, explained the vision behind the exhibition for the tots of the nation.

“What the education sub-committee does every year is get schools involved in these activities,” Pompey stated.

“We have things like poster competitions for the primary and lower secondary schools and essay competitions for…secondary schools and an activity for pre-schools”.

The chairperson also noted that last year “Tots for Marine Life” was in the form of a show at the Peace Memorial Hall.

With the aid of their teachers, students were expected to create art and craft that depicted this year’s slogan, at the exhibition.

Prizes were given to students schools with outstanding pieces.

Green Valley Pre-School earned first prize, while Imani Pre-School walked away with the second prize. The Vinsave Child Development Centre won third prize.

“We know they’re all winners and we even gave those who participated prizes,” Pompey noted.

The special mention first prize was awarded to the Marriaqua Anglican Early Childhood Centre; the second prize was awarded to the Kingstown Methodist Pre-School and the third prize went to the Bequia Anglican Early Childhood Centre.

The “Tots in Marine Life –Exhibition” was the last event that took place before the grand finale Fisherman’s Day event, which was held in Calliaqua on Monday.(BK)
