Montego Bay Infant School teachers honoured
After a year of providing stellar service to the education system, teachers at the Caribbean's largest early-childhood institution were honoured at a dinner at the Seven Restaurant last Thursday night.
Forty educators from Montego Bay Infant school and their guests turned out for the event where they were recognised and awarded with gift packages, courtesy of Fontana Pharmacy, a weekend at the Hilton Rose Hall, day passes to Holiday Inn, and entry for a family of four to Mystic Mountain attraction in Ocho Rios.
The party, which was funded by the MoBay City Run, 10K/5K Run and Walk, had the teachers entertained by their talented colleagues, Treisha Williams, vice-principal, Carmen Dawkins and Debbie Stephenson-Simms.
Williams, a dub poet of no mean order, was like a rising star as she sang a number of Christmas carols, reminding those in attendance of the joy the season brings.
After three hours at the Altamont West Hotel venue, the camaraderie was evident, and the teachers were happy that they were able to have such a fellowship outside of the classroom.
"It was a lovely event, which allowed the teachers to share and let down their hair," said deputy chairman of the school board, Sharon Matheson.
