Viola Nursery to benefit from project won by former student

first_imgViola Nursery in New Amsterdam, Berbice, is to benefit from a developmental project won by a former student of that school. The student won an inter-nursery school colouring competition of which the first prize was a school developmental project.Children of six of the seven nursery schools in the town had to colour two objects and the top from each school were selected to participate in the final.The winning entry came from Hailey Peters of Viola Nursery; the second place went to Chrystal Mosses and third to Aubrey Gravesandy.Peters was impressive with her colouring of a banana and the national flag.The competition was organised and sponsored by Furniture World on King Street, New Amsterdam.Managing Director of Furniture World, Janette Hikel, explained that they were looking for neatness and uniformity in colouring. She added that they also wanted to encourage children to use appropriate colours when colouring.“The flag has five colours. I noticed that some of the children used purple and brown decorating the National Flag more that it should be. So they lost marks for that. They had to choose the five colours and they had to be placed in the correct way. They also had to colour within the boundaries.”In the preliminary round students were asked to colour a clown and a bicycle.Meanwhile, the top two winners from each school who were in the final received educational prizes.Hikel said while the competition is only in its first year and was extended to nursery schools in New Amsterdam, next year it will be extended to all the nursery schools in Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne).last_img read more
