Barbadian Children’s Summer Camp visits the British High Commission

Over fifty children from the Unique Helping Hands Summer Camp, located in St Michael, visited the British High Commission recently as part of a learning and development field trip. Daniel Carruthers, Second Secretary, welcomed the group and spoke to them about the United Kingdom and the role of the High Commission in Barbados.

Following the presentation, the children watched a series of short films to learn more about the London 2012 Olympic Games which will take place in the UK in July next year. The next part of their field trip involved a visit to the residence of the British High Commissioner, Paul Brummell, to watch a Climate Change themed puppet show performed by the environmental NGO, the Future Centre Trust.

The children attending the camp learned valuable lessons, gained exposure to the important issue of Climate Change and most importantly enjoyed a fantastic day out.
