Students take in Agrofest
THOUSANDS OF BARBADIAN students flocked to Queen’s Park today to participate in the first day of the three-day annual agricultural show, Agrofest.
And while the excitement showed on the students faces as they toured many booths, some vendors vented that they were displeased and dissatisfied that some “teachers just dragging the children along.”
Craftswoman Azilia Joseph, told the SATURDAY SUN that she was puzzled as to why some “teachers are just pulling the children and telling them to hurry and walk up and not giving them enough time to look at or even buy from stalls.”
Joseph explained: “I asked one teacher if she was not going to stop and let the little children shop and she said ‘they bought already’. I said to her, we have over 300 vendors down here and they bought all they wanted already? They are only supposed to buy from one person? And then she went along with an attitude and the children followed her.”
