IT was only faces of smiles and a spirit of jollification at the Moblissa Primary School on the Soesdyke/Linden Highway, on Thursday, as Minister within the Ministry of Agriculture, Valarie Yearwood, ushered in the spirit of Christmas as she played Santa Claus, and presented over 100 children with gifts.
The gift sharing was only a part of the party, as the children were also treated to food, beverages and good music, along with Christmas carol singing, all in an effort to make them feel loved and appreciated during this season of giving.
The event was a collaborative effort between Minister Yearwood and the Region 10 National Congress of Women, who ensured that the students do not feel left out or neglected, given their remote residence.
The minister and the women represented at the school shared in Carol singing and merry-making as the party got into action. Minister Yearwood, giving brief remarks, said when she was told about the initiative, she immediately came on board, as she loved children and wanted the children of Moblissa to feel special.
Headteacher of Moblissa Primary, Winette Amsterdam, in expressing appreciation, said the community, though demarcated in Region Four, receives overwhelming assistance from the Region 10 Regional Democratic Council and stakeholders, which was reflected once again in yet another Christmas party sponsorship. She alluded to many other occasions where Region 10 would come on board and said that words are not enough to thank the officials for always coming to the school’s assistance.
