Several schools were represented this morning at the annual Children’s Rally that makes up a part of the September celebrations calendar. The rally had just under two hours of entertainment and speeches conducted for the primary school students who came out from Wesley, Grace Primary, All Saints, St Luke’s, Holy Redeemer, among others. Minister of State with responsibility for youth and sports, Elodio Aragon was present at this morning’s event and told Love News that this rally is done with an aim at reinforcing the importance of love for country.
Today’s event is only one of a few more aimed at inspiring young minds. Aragon did concede this morning that there is much more that can be done to teach children the importance of sovereignty and patriotism.
The rally ended just after ten o’clock this morning with most children getting the remainder of the day off from school.
