All dressed up in the colours of Jamaica, the bright, smiling faces of the four- and five-year-olds at St Joseph's Infant School in Kingston betrayed their excitement about yesterday's Heritage Week celebration at the school.
Under the theme 'Our History … Our Strength', the school was transformed into a kaleidoscope of Jamaican heritage, reflecting the nation's culture, food, and traditions.
"We wanted to expose the children to the various sides of Jamaica that make us so unique," said computer teacher Nickesha Graham.
"We realise that so much about our history and what Jamaica is truly about is diminishing and we don't want our children to grow up and not be fully exposed to Jamaica's rich heritage."
On display were Jamaica's many fruits, vegetables and ground provisions. A juice bar allowed the children to sample Jamaica's many delights, as fruits were blended into various flavours to make slushies.
