JohnYou can send them to the HIDN in Care of Tiffany Harbour Island Bahamas 'but it will take a number of weeks to get there. I am going down in a couple of weeks so can send them to me. John Tysse, 141 central, Holland, Mich, 49723 and will take them down for you. Thanks

My group of 7 visited the daycare last week and Tiffany was wonderful. We'd like to send copies of the pictures and other misc. items for the kids now and then. Can you please supply me with the mailing address.

Thanks, Jennifer (guest of the McLallen Family in South Bar)

JohnBoy would we love to have the books. I am not sure how to get them there. Perhaps you could Call the G & G 954 920 9292 and ask if they would be willing to take them over knowing they are for the school. I know Customs would allow books for the school in free of duty. Lable them for the Nursery and address to Wade Higggs. Thanks.and good luck.

A wise man once told the PM something that stands to this day:

MaddieCongratulations to all! I remeber when the Nursery was started, what a wonderful thing for the working families on Harbour Island.

Please tell us how we can make a donation to the nursery, since we are not coming down this year.

JohnSix teachers have completed their in-service training for the Grandfathering of Caregivers of Daycare and Preschool Centers. they have been trained in CPR for infants, toddlers and adults. They have been tested by and observed in their teaching skills by the Ministry of Education and passed with flying colors. They were told they were the best group of teachers they have had and would recommend the school to anyone. The lowest test score received was a 96 and Tiffany was the star with 100%. They are all very proud and happy. The Graduation Ceremony is being held in Nassua on March 19. They are going over on the Fast Ferry on March 18th, staying three in a room in Nassua so they can be a part of all of the recognition program. Ada Slaight and son Garry have graciously made a donation to the HIDN to cover the expenses so they can receive their certificates together.

The six teachers are:Mrs. Bernice Johnson, Mrs Veronica Adderley, Mrs Iona Higgs, Ms Neeka Higgs, Mrs Verdell Higgs and Mrs Tiffany Dean.
