Bailey House’s Desrica Black and Renaldo Sutherland also took the spelling-bee title, which was based on the theme “Technology Today.”

In addition, the Young Leaders group commenced outreach programmes on Friday, February 20, 2015, when they visited the New Prospect Infant School and the Biabou Methodist School.

The visits saw the Young Leaders sensitizing the students on how to become good digital citizens. The PowerPoint presentations used included Internet safety tips and Internet dangers such as hacking, identity theft, sexting, cyber-bullying and the viewing of pornography. After receiving the information, students were treated with stationery supplies as gifts for engaging in discussions with the Young Leaders.
