More than 50,000 patrons from across the island are expected to converge today at JamWorld Entertainment Centre in Portmore, St. Catherine, for the LIME Skool Aid.

The telecommunications company has pulled out all the stops for the fifth staging of its annual event, as it prepares to treat children and parents to a host of goodies, just in time for the new school year.

Free medical, dental and optical checks for children, free school bags and supplies, as well as a raft of other services are just some of the offerings the gathering will be treated to.

Parents are expected to find the ultimate bargains at the one-stop shopping experience, as LIME promises great deals on items such as books, uniforms and lunchbox supplies through a number of vendors and partners who will be offering significant discounts.

The day will be complete with scholarship giveaways, phone specials, a large amusement park, petting zoo, marching bands and a live entertainment package.

Today's big event is a culmination of an islandwide tour which for the first time saw parents and children in rural Jamaica having their very own Skool Aid experience.

Persons wanting to attend can purchase $300 LIME mobile credit at select LIME locations in Kingston, Portmore and Spanish Town to secure tickets for the event.
