Earlier this year the graduating class of Lauren’s Central High School, from upstate New York, came to Grand Bahama for thier Senior trip on a cruise to the island. They wanted to have a community project as part of their trip so the Ministry of Tourism, on the suggestion of Karen Seymour, came to the GB Children’s Home.
The class also brought some items for the children: books, pencils arts and crafts items, as well as hygiene items.
The seniors, along with their teachers and chaperones visited the Home on March 28th 2013. Their transport to the Home was compliments of the Ministry of Tourism and their staff. The assistance with dutiable items being exempted was compliments of the Minister of Finance.
While here at the Home the seniors and the entire entourage had a fantastic time playing, reading and teaching Arts and Crafts to the residents of the Home. They spend several hours with the children.
So how nice was it to get an email and learn that this class had decided to donate the left over funds from thier class trip to our home! Thier teacher Mrs. Celine C. Francisco has organised the funds to come to us and we are again overwhelmed by this amazing class!
Hats off to these beautiful students, may you be blessed!
