A full month of activities as part of Child Stimulation Month concluded countrywide with separate parades in the different municipalities. In San Pedro Town, it was no exception as pre-school students, along with their parents and teachers took to the street in a lively and colorful parade. The parade started from the Central Park and made its way through the principal streets of town culminating at the Central Park.
All five preschools, ABC Preschool, Little Angel Preschool, Holy Cross Anglican, San Pedro Preschool and Brighter Tomorrow were assigned a specific color. The students were dressed in their school’s colors and their balloons enthusiastically throughout the parade. With a large truck blasting music and members of the San Pedro High School Marching Band drumming away, students, parents and spectators were entertained throughout the route.
The event, coordinated by the principals of the preschools and the Ministry of Education, is done to highlight and raise awareness about the importance of early childhood education in the education system in Belize. Activities where conducted under theme “Early Childhood Education – Molding today’s learners into tomorrow’s leaders.” Activities ran from March 1st and ended with the closing parade on March 22nd, which coincides with the beginning of the Easter Break.
