On Saturday August 21, 2016 the Community Service Committee hosted their first project at the Jamaica National Children’s Home where over 82 children were entertained and participated in various activities such as Netball , Football, Design Arts for the younger children and a Math-Olympic competition.
The project was geared towards fostering a relationship with the children while engaging in fun and education.
During the days activities Mount Olivet boys dominated the football games, achieving back-to-back wins in the first and second age game with DCP/IPP Terence as the referee. The youngsters on the first age Mt. Olivet boys’ team ended as the winners with three (3) goals to nil (0) over the JN first age youngsters. While, the second age team decapitated any opportunity for the JN boys being able to score a whopping 5 goals over the second age JN boys.
However on the netball side of things, the game was just as exhilarating. The girl’s team were unstoppable and they took the win over Checker scoring 20 goals to 7 balls. Notwithstanding, Checker still managed to put the ball through the net with great zeal.
There was fun and excitement thoroughout leading to the lunch hour. At this moment our very own “controlla” DJ Rtr. Thaad provided music for the “fetings and dance offs shenanigans”, while everyone enjoyed their lunch. After which the children all took to the field to demonstrate their expertise in the latest dance moves and styles, while Dir. Shanieka, Dir. Latoya, Sec. Desiann and Rtr. Rochelle all joined in to learn a few moves and flaunt some of their own.
The final competition for the day was a Math-Olympic with children ranging from 8-13 partaking which saw the girls prevailed over the boys to be triumphant in the end.
Ultimately, the day was a very successful one. Along with the sponsorship of Tastee Jamaica Ltd, NKRC was able to put a smile on the faces of each and everyone of the children who were jubilant to share in the day’s festivities.
Cheers to another successful project.
