School gets Children's Day surprise
Lunch time for the students of the All Saints Infant School last Friday, was far from the norm, thanks to Digicel Jamaica. Their playground was transformed into an exciting fairground, complete with bouncy-houses, carousel rides and various sweet treats.
"I am so happy that Digicel came in and did this for the children. We actually didn't have much planned for National Children's Day, so this was indeed a welcome surprise for the kids, parents and even the teachers," said principal Patreece James.
Members of the Digicel team and the Digicel Foundation were also on hand to enjoy the afternoon with the students, playing ring games, singing and getting in on all the fun with the children.
"We couldn't think of a better way to celebrate Children's Day than coming out and having some fun with the children at the All Saints Infant School," shared Wenise Davis, general manager for consumer mobile at Digicel. "With today being National Children's Day and UNICEF's Play Day, we saw this surprise fair as the ideal way to celebrate and bring some joy to these lovely children."
Davis added: "Throughout Child's Month, we've remained committed to the theme of celebrating all our children, from sharing the hashtag #OurChildrenJa to reinforcing our commitment to the children of Jamaica in every way. So we continue to do all we can to help by providing them with the resources they need to develop their social and behavioural skills and achieve their full potential."
After assisting with the rebuilding of the school after Hurricane Ivan in 2004, the Digicel Foundation has continued to maintain a close relationship with the institution.
