Pre-schoolers showcase Biblical themes on parade

Led by banners and clad in bright, colorful costumes depicting this year’s theme, “A Walk Through the Bible”, hundreds of toddlers paraded through the streets of New Providence on Thursday, April 11 in celebration of Pre-School Week.

“Joseph’s Coat of Many Colours”, “The 10 Commandments”, “The Story of Samuel”, “The Prodigal Son”, “Baby Moses”, “Sampson and Delilah”, “Walls of Jericho”, “Daniel in the Lion’s Den”, “David the Shepherd Boy”, “Jonah and the Whale” and “Jesus Feeds 5,000” were some of the biblical themes featured on the banners.

The boys and girls braved the scorching heat as they paraded, sometimes holding the hands of their classmate, teacher or parent. They also laughed, danced, sang, chanted and waved to people who lined the streets along the route starting at Willard Patton Pre-school on Augusta Street and culminating at Heritage Park, Arawak Cay.

The costume parade and road march is one of the events planned by the Department of Education to commemorate the 15th Annual Pre-School Week, held from April 7 to 12.

During a brief ceremony at Arawak Cay, awards were presented to the students and schools for their participation and achievements in the 5th Andrea D. Wisdom Pre-School Sports Day held Tuesday, April 9 at the Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium.
