Special dress day at Learning Ladder

Students and staff at The Learning Ladder Nursery and Preschool yesterday marked Barbados’ 50th Anniversary of Independence with a special dress day that saw them transforming into easily recognizable Bajan characters and personalities.

Trading their uniforms for costumes, the students of the ‘Applegrove’, Black Rock, St Michael school depicted personalities and themes they learned about throughout the term.

From a Shaggy Bear and a green monkey, to cricketers, cane cutters, nut sellers, tourists and even Rihanna, students aged two to three years old paraded their costumes for parents who came out to give their support.

Even the staff got in on the action, with principal Cheryl Byer joining the little girls who were dressed as nut sellers, and Keira Brome depicting a cricketer.

Byer told Barbados TODAY that the school usually held an Independence programme around this time of year, but this year it wanted to do something extra-special for the island’s Golden Jubilee.
