THE USUAL DROP and Read session at St Ambrose Primary School in The City took on a new feel yesterday.
Introduced to foster a love for reading and books a few years ago, the 20-minute session was held a day later than usual to accommodate visiting students from the private Forman Boarding School in Connecticut, United States.
The 12 students, who were accompanied by three teachers, shared stories about their town and their school as they interacted with the nursery to Class 4 students. Some of them got comfortable in the tiny chairs and on the floor to read with the students as well.
Yesterday’s visit was part of a community service requirement for the American students, who are on a one-week educational tour to Barbados. The visit was facilitated by the Lions Club of St Michael, which works closely with St Ambrose. (YB)
