Schools across the island observed Jamaica Day yesterday, the annual activity designed to share the island’s culture and enhance the experience of students as citizens of Jamaica.

This year, the Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment, and Sport collaborated with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information to mark the occasion under the theme ‘Celebrating Jamaica: Nurturing our Cultural and Natural Heritage’.

The feature school for this year’s observance was Munro College in St Elizabeth where the Culture Division team from the Ministry of Culture was scheduled to promote its Culture Passport programme that allows students free or reduced cost access to heritage sites, cultural institutions such as museums, galleries, theatres and special cultural performances.

The Jamaica Observer captured activities at two schools — Glowell Prep and Kindergarten in Portmore, and Denham Town Primary in Kingston. Here are highlights.
