On May 26, students, teachers, administrators and parents of Central Abaco Primary School (CAPS) embarked upon the school’s Literacy Week, which was highlighted by the Annual Literacy March to “Declare War on Illiteracy” as this year’s theme.
The march began at Automotive & Industrial Distributors Ltd. (AID) in downtown Marsh Harbour and continued on to the school grounds. As the students walked through the area, you could hear loud chants of their theme: “We Declare War – on Illiteracy.”
Each grade level designed beautiful banners adorned with the names of well-loved books like The Cat in The Hat, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Little Red Hen, Pippi Longstockings’ Fun Filled Adventures and Black Beauty along with their respective authors. Additional banners held a message to “Read to Succeed” on one while the other showed CAPS – Home of the Soaring Eagles on it.
The Department of Environmental Health partnered with CAPS to provide entertainment and to announce to the public what the march was all about as they passed by. There was also visible support from the Marsh Harbour Police Station and its Road Traffic Division and the ambulance service.
