Pupils tour Parliament

Social Share

INFANTS of Charles F. Broome Primary School got a personalized tour of Parliament yesterday, courtesy of Deputy Speaker of the House Kenny Best.
The excited children, along with parents and teachers, toured Parliament’s Museum and even got to sit in on yesterday’s debate as it resumed after the summer recess.
Paulette Wiles, executive floor member of he school’s parent-teacher association, said the tour was a part of a much larger annual social studies project.
“Each year we usually do a project on something related to Barbados. Today the Infants B class visited various historical places in Bridgetown: Parliament, the Jewish Synagogue, the [Montefiore] monument opposite the free library and James Street Methodist Church,” she said.
Wiles said the tour also included a trip to the $3 store to teach the children how to spend money wisely. She said they would continue with more tours in two weeks’ time.
