Tiny tots have fun with history

Students of the Eden Lodge Nursery School recently got a practical lesson in history.

The group of excited children visited sites connected to Barbados’ National Heroes, in keeping with the school theme this year Our Heritage, Our Roots, as well as Government House which was in line with the sub-theme Guardians Of Our Heritage.

It was a full-day lesson as they visited the Bussa statue at the J.T.C Ramsay Roundabout, the Samuel Jackman Prescod Polytechnic, the Frank Walcott Building in Culloden Road, The Garrison, Government Headquarters where they saw the Sir Grantley Adams statue, Independence Square where they got up close to the Errol Barrow statue, the Charles Duncan Oneal Bridge, Kensington Oval, and the Ann Gill Memorial Methodist Church.

At Kensington Oval, the students had lunch in the stands and paid special attention to a statue of Barbados’ only living hero Sir Garfield Sobers.

At Government House they didn’t get a chance to interact with Governor General Sir Elliot Belgrave, but his aide-de-camp Captain Carlos Lovell and butler Alex Holloway had lots to tell and show the boys and girls. They were taken on a comprehensive tour, being allowed to explore the grounds and have a look inside the Governor General’s residence.
