Speaker of the National Assembly hosts Annual Children’s Christmas Party

Hits: 755 / Published Date: 11 Dec, 2016


The Speaker of the National Assembly, Hon. Barton U.A Scotland, O.R., C.C.H, M.P., took time out of his busy schedule, over the past weekend (Saturday, December 10), to host the National Assembly’s annual Children’s Christmas Party. Scores of anxious and excited children from the Sophia Care Centre; the Mahaica Children’s Home; the Ministry of Education’s Resource Unit for the Blind and Visually Impaired; along with children of the staff of the Parliament Office packed the lawns of the Parliament Office to receive their Christmas gifts and refreshments compliments of the Speaker. The party included a short “official” segment chaired by children of the Parliament staff and included poems and songs also performed by staff’s children. They were also entertained by special guests: Barney, Elsa, Ollaf and Santa Clause. During this segment, Dr. Scotland greeted the children, and explained to them that the National Assembly’s Annual Children’s Christmas party began with his predecessor, Raphael Trotman. “It is something that I look forward to and it brings a great sense of pride, joy and humility when I see the excited look on the faces of the children and the expression of gratitude from their parents.” The party provided an opportunity for the children as well as parents and caretakers to socialize and interact with the Speaker and other Members of Parliament, including Mr. Richard Allen, Mr. Michael Carrington and Mr. Harry Gill. "Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first.”
