BT’s Valentine’s treat
There were plenty of treats, as well as lots of useful advice when the Barbados TODAY team surprised the children of the Half Moon Fort Primary School in St Lucy with a special pre-Valentine’s Day visit earlier today.
Nine-year-old Tamaya Francis of Class two was the envy of her peers after she won herself a tablet, compliments of Promotech. The prize was reserved for student who best recapped and presented a summary of our CEO and Editor-In-Chief’s talk with the pupils in which she reminded the students that they could be anything they wanted to be once they put their minds to it.
She also encouraged them to be respectful at all times, and urged them to stay away from violence at all times.
“If you practice being respectful at a young age, it will transfer into your adult life,” Jordan told them. Furthermore, she encouraged them to make it their business to use the Internet for good, while touting the benefits of reading her company’s online newspaper on a daily basis, as well as utilizing the broadcast elements of its multi-media platform.
It was the fifth stop on BT’s fifth anniversary school tour, which continues for the rest of 2015.
The entire school was treated to Hershey’s chocolates, compliments Bryden Stokes, kiss cakes from WIBISCO and food vouchers from Chefette, as well as BT stickers and pencils.
From there, the team made its way to Speightstown to hand out bumper stickers and to interact with the residents in the north.
The final stop of the day was Coach Hill, St John for a special treat in honour of birthday girl Ione Beckles, even though belatedly. Beckles celebrated her 102nd birthday earlier this week and was presented with a hamper compliments Pharmacy Sales Caribbean. The centenarian was very happy to receive her gift and could not stop giggling.
