Central Abaco Primary School (CAPS) World Teachers Day on Oct. 9. While teachers were treated to a special luncheon complete with fun activities, Principal Beatrice Moxey entertained the students with an amusing story called, “I Know An Old Lady.”
Before she began, Moxey asked the students if they knew an old lady to which they replied yes. Then she asked if they knew an old lady at the school, and the children answered yes again.
“I hope you’re not meaning me,” she responded.
Laughter erupted from the students. Throughout the course of the story, the old lady swallowed a fly, a spider, a bird, a cat, a dog, a goat, a cow and a horse – all in an attempt to kill the fly that she initially swallowed.
Unfortunately, the old lady died after swallowing the horse. Moxey asked the students why the old lady died, and one primary school student answered that she died because she had swallowed all of the animals.
The day ended with two songs: “If You’re Happy and You know It,” and “Deep and Wide.” Moxey thanked all parents in attendance for their support before dismissing the students.
