Nursery schools close off 2019 Children’s Mashramani Competition… for Region Four

As the curtain for the 2019 Region Four Children’s Mashramani Competition concluded on Friday, the nursery schools gave credence to the term ‘saving the best for last’.

The nursery school children came out in large numbers to represent their schools with the final day of competition being held at the Enmore Community Centre ground.

Several parents and well-wishers were also in attendance to encourage and witness the children as they competed in several categories. The children poured their hearts out in their performances with many cheering and encouraging the evidently brave children on their performances which brought many sitting in the stands to their feet and others moving unto the ground closer to the stage as they sought to get a better glimpse of what was happening.

The children, who came from as far as Clonbrook Nursey on the East Coast to Silver Hill Nursery, turned out early to play their part in a very packed programme. Lending valuable support were teachers from the respective schools with a number of parents lending support as 20190211 8
