We’ve come a long way

Remember when milk and biscuits was the order of the day for primary schools at break time?

Remember when it wasn’t so strange to go to school without shoes on your feet? Well whether you were around in these days or not, these sure are fond reflections for Independence.

    Growing up I was told about these days. To me its a strength to see what it was and what it is now. Education was always a strong part of Barbados heritage and I am Proud .
