Jamaican Basic School Picture
QUESTION: Hi there Wellesley. Hope all is well with you and your family. I am coming to visit in March and want to bring items to donate to a school near Negril. What do you recommend I bring for the children and where should I bring it???
I hope to have extra room in my luggage and would love to help the kids out. Thank you very much, Kris :)ANSWER:

Thanks for your question Kris, and thanks for kind gesture.
I am assuming you are thinking a basic school right?
Good, as I just love those little beauties.
Anything pertaining to school should be fine, erasers, pencils, glue sticks, child safety scissors, colored markers, flash cards (perhaps), writing books, and of course crayons,non-toxic. You might also want to consider some some liquid hand soap or sanitizer - those should fill your luggage space right :-)
You did say a school near Negril right?
Do you have any idea which school near Negril you are going to? If so, feel free to just show up, I'm sure they (both teacher and students) would be elated and make time for you.
If you are don't have one, please take a look at these (below). These are basic schools near the Negril/Westmoreland area only- actually an image so bear with me on the quality.
I have the name of the school, the location, contact person and a telephone number, in most cases a cell; just add 1-876- before the number.
I got them from TripAdvisor so I can't guarantee the validity of the contact information but I assume that at least a few (numbers) are still functional.
By the way, I added added a photo (above), that's a pic showing my baby, back then :-), singing a song at a ceremony at her basic school in June 2008, she's the one in the middle, the shortest one :-).
Thanks again for the initiative Kris, please stop by after the visit and let us know how it went.
All the best Kris.
