Jamaica Day 2016 - In Pics & Video
Every year, the Ministry of Education, under its Culture in Education Programme, set aside a "Jamaica Day" for all schools in the island. The idea is that it allows us to pause to celebrate the many markers of our unique "Jamaicanness" and our contribution to the world. This year, the day was celebrated under the theme "Celebrating Jamaica, Promoting The Arts". The event is usually held on the last Friday in February but was pushed back because of the 2016 general election. Anyway, I took the opportunity to share in the day with the students and teachers at Howard Cooke Primary, here in Montego Bay. Can I tell you.... it was loads of fun? They had recitals, drama and dance, highlighting some of those who made a mark on our rich culture and history, including Louise Bennett and Sam Sharpe. Here also are a few of the moments I captured in vidoe - using my mobile phone. Please enjoy!
