Deighton Griffith giving back

Students placing their dollars on the line.

The celebrations for the Deighton Griffith School’s 21st anniversary continues.

This morning students, staff, parents, visitors and well-wishers were all at the school collecting silver dollars to donate to the Kiwanis Club of Bridgetown, which every year, hosts the Kiwanis Silver Dollar for Children drive to aid eight charities across the island.

During the day people including students from Christ Church Girls’ Primary went to the schools’ auditorium and laid their silver dollars on a large number 21 drawn in the centre of the auditorium. The effort was conceptualised by the Key Club and facilitator, Zondeen Alleyne, who said that she was pleased at the work done by the Key Club and the support which the effort received from all the students.

Principal Cheryll Moseley also commended the effort, noting that the school had done much in its 21 years and was happy and proud to be giving back to the community.

Chairman of the Silver Dollar drive Lennox Prescod and Veronica Squires of Kiwanis South were on hand as well to oversee the proceedings.
