Awards ceremony celebrate Early Childhood practitioners

Once again, Early Childhood practitioners on Montserrat, some for the first, second or many times since 2008 gathered on the evening of Tuesday, June 26, 2017 at the Goodlife Night Club in Little Bay, where the deserving received special awards for their work and dedication to the care and education of the very young.

The award ceremony was a highlighting activity for the month-long celebrations, organised in their honour where in the presence of the practitioners, young and old with parents, male and female listened to congratulatory greetings from new Permanent Secretary and the new Director of Dr. Gregory Julius who lauded the efforts of these teachers. The Director was reminded after he singled out a pioneer of the Early Childhood education by the MC, that Mrs. Henrietta Lindsey known to many as “Miss. Sissie” had already been awarded last year, for her initiative for starting Early Childhood services in 1970 – 1973.
