The Jens Haven Memorial School and the Primary School have been raising money in support of the Janeway Children’s Hospital in St. John’s over the past 10 years.
Mr. Healy is the secretary for the JHMS Primary school.
He says the scheduled event that is taking place for today is Cultural Day; this is when the children dress up in traditional clothing.
Tomorrow is Crazy hat day where the children decorate their own hats; and they’ll have a bake sale at recess time from 10:30 -10:50.
Later there will be a bingo game in which the children will be asked to contribute 50 cents to donate to Janeway.
They are also inviting one family member to come and play; the parent or guardian has to contribute $1 to play; a note will be sent home with the children.
In addition, baked goods will also be on sale for 50 cents each.
Ms. Ada Healy is the Grade 1teacher at the primary school.
She adds that the teachers will have a meeting to configure the schedule of events for the Janeway.
OKâlaKatiget will get a follow up tomorrow from Mrs. Irene Webb of the upcoming events.
