Graydon Sealy goes pink


Share post:

October is already turning pink across Barbados.

Yesterday, students at the Graydon Sealy Secondary School joined the national fight against breast cancer and formed a pink ribbon in the school’s car park.

“We thought it was important to highlight breast cancer awareness,” Brian Parris, one of the school’s business studies teachers said.

 “People must understand that children are affected by this as well. If you have a child who is going to worry for their mother, they may be distracted and it could affect their performance. It is something that people need to be sensitised about at all schools,” he said.

Parris said his senior students were behind the venture. “The initiative was from the small business management class of the Upper Fifth students. Their whole curriculum this year is to start endeavours and practise their entrepreneurship skills.”
