Handwriting still important
AT A TIME when handwriting appears to be giving way to touch-tone technology, head of the Isaiah 55 Centre for Spiritual and Developmental Training Cassandra Browne is encouraging children to perfect their hand-writing skills.
Browne said her centre still regarded good handwriting as a necessary tool for young children in this technological age when everyone is on a gadget.
Winners from six primary schools were this morning presented with prizes won in the annual handwriting competition organized by the Isaiah 55 Centre in collaboration with the Ministry of Education.
After the presentations, Bay Primary principal Marielon Gamble said she did not think enough good handwriting was encouraged in the school, the home or the community. She maintained continuing the practice was still very important because writing was required in every subject area. (GC)
