“We wanted to find out how much the children really knew about their town, all the questions were preset and based on the history of Linden and given to the teachers of the various Primary Schools, so the students had prior knowledge of them. We didn’t want to ask those questions they were not au fait with.”
Scott said that Linden is unique because it is the only town with a river running through it.
Regional Vice Chairman Elroy Adolph congratulated the students and encouraged them not to falter but to continuously move forward.
“Always work with your dreams, aim for the sky so if you fall you will land among the stars.” He also urged them to use their tokens as a motivation.news 20170616
