The Nevis Island Administration (NIA) Cabinet Ministers accompanied the Early Childhood Unit, parents, teachers and children in this year’s Child Month parade through the Island Main Road in Charlestown on June 13, 2008.
The dignitaries who lead the parade included Premier of Nevis and Minister of Education Hon. Joseph Parry, Minister of Youth Hon. Hensley Daniel and his wife Mrs. Sonita Daniel, Principal Education Officer Mrs. Jennifer Hodge, Legal Advisor to the NIA Mr. Patrice Nisbett, Health Advisor Mrs. Patricia Hanley, Advisor in the Premier’s Ministry Mr. Llewelyn Parris and Education Advisor Mrs. Christine Springette.
While the theme for this year’s celebration was “Celebrating the present with an eye on the future,” much emphasis was placed on the 25th anniversary of independence for St. Kitts and Nevis.
The students presented brief dances for the general public outside the Nevis Tourism Authority Building in Charlestown.
The march began at the Nevis Cultural Center and culminated at Grove Park where hundreds of children and their parents gathered to celebrate the island’s youth.
