THE GEORGE LAMMING Primary School took the message of African awareness on the road today.
The school partnered with the Pan African Commission and the Barbados Museum to take Class Three and Four students on a tour of selected monuments to six national heroes – Sir Garfield Sobers; Clement Payne; Bussa; Sir Grantley Adams; Errol Barrow and Sir Frank Walcott.
The classes were divided among three buses which visited three separate locations at a time.
The DAILY NATION spoke to Class Four teacher Janelle Johnson as her group visited Kensington Oval and the Garfield Sobers statue.
“We are viewing these statues in Bridgetown and its environs to find out why they are there, who they are named after and about the national heroes they are named after,” she said, adding the children would be required to write a report.
Johnson said about 180 children in total were involved in the tour.
Roshanna Trim, a junior curator at the Barbados Museum, also accompanied the students, supplying a wealth of knowledge and information. (CA)
