Early Childhood Education week
Students of the Newtown Primary School, Charlotte’s Nursery School and Jinja Pre-school all converged to the Fatima Church in Newtown for a church ceremony of Early Childhood Education Week, which commenced on Monday April 23rd.
The mass was hosted by Newtown Parish Priest Father Clement, who delivered a sermon based on children from the book of Matthew, which was perfect for the opening of Early Childhood Education Week.
He also thanked the principals and teachers of the schools, for bringing the students to church to begin celebrating this educational week since anything is possible with God.
Father Clement also said that it is very important that the young children receive blessings from God.
There were bidding prayers done by Principal of the Charlotte Nursery School Ms. Glenda Bertrand, a teacher at the Jinjah Pre-school and a student of the Newtown Primary School.
They all enjoyed the praise and worship segment of the church service singing songs such as; Jesus love is a bubbling over and Jesus loves the little children amongst others.
The mass concluded with Father Clement blessing the children.
Early childhood education week will run from April 23rd to April 27th 2012.
