SEVERAL SCHOOLS reflected the Bajan pride as they staged activities during the past week to mark Barbados’ 49th anniversary of Independence.

At Wills Private School in Maxwell, Christ Church, the children were told that although Independence was to be celebrated, it was never to be taken for granted.

Teacher Beverly Williams told the DAILY NATION that today’s generation have to understand the sacrifices their foreparents made for them.

“Independence didn’t come easy and we shouldn’t take it for granted,” she said, adding the school had been pursuing activities to educate the children about Barbados.

“Barbadians are a very proud people and I think a lot of parents are passing on that.” (MR)
