Haiti Backpack Drive

In order to help alleviate the plight suffered by some of Haiti's children as a result of Hurricane Gustav, George Town Primary School students filled more than 100 Digicel bags with clothing, personal hygiene items, books, crayons and coloured markers. Led by teacher Tunisia Barnes, our students found the collection drive both motivating and satisfying, a true learning experience.
