Brown Hill—Nevis–The camp refresh two weeks sessions in the Brown Hill area, concluded on a high note on Friday 24th July.
Community Development officer, Miss Malva Rawlins, noted that the children were exposed to quite a lot of things during their time spent at the Brown Hill Community Center.
They were taught to create various types of craft items, helped in no small measure, by two experienced ladies from within the community.
Miss Sheryl Sutton taught the children to make dogs from wool and also taught them to make bags.
Miss Jean Hendrickson taught the children how to make pencil holders from used Clorox bottles and also taught them the basic skills of embroidery.
Mr. Leroy JUN-JUN Sweeney of the Sports Department also conducted sessions in various sporting activities with the children.
Miss Rawlins herself, engaged the children in some baking sessions with the boys being taught how to make patties and the girls were taught how to make cup cakes.
Several guest speakers also educated the children on other topics during the camp.
These included a session on interview skills by Curtis Morton; a session on First Aid by Miss Gwenneth Browne and a session on ropes and knot tying by Mr. Martin of the Fire and Rescue Services.
The closing session which was held on Friday 24th July, was chaired by Center Manager for the Prospect area, Mrs. Gale Greenaway and she had special commendations for the assistance provided by Center Manager for the Brown Hill Community Center, Miss Esmeralda Pemberton.
During the closing ceremony, the children rendered songs and poems which were all well received.
The craft items which were on display were later viewed close up by members of the general public.
CDO Malva Rawlins thought that it was a rewarding two weeks with the children
