We at GND Schools Inc. were honored to have our local trustee and owner of the Calabash Luxury Boutique Hotel, Mr. Leo Garbutt MBE, visit with us along with a team of high-powered UK journalists.

The team toured our very first 'stand alone' library built at the South St. George Government School and were super impressed with its look and functionality, which still looks amazing five years later!

Well done to the students and staff at South St. George Government School for continuing to care for this beautiful gift! See more of the tour in a future post.

Parental involvement is important in early childhood education. When parents take an active role by extending teaching outside the classroom, they create a more positive experience for their children which can help them perform better in school.

Here’s a neat activity called ‘Glitter Germs’ to help young children understand how germs spread.

1. Put a small amount of glitter on their hands.
2. Show how washing hands with soap and water gets rid of the glitter or ‘germs’ better than using water only.
3. Next, put glitter on your hands and touch your child’s hands, shoulders, hair, etc. to show how the glitter is transferred. Explain how germs are also transferred in this way. Stay safe this flu season!
