Nursery One, School of the Nations pupils pay keen attention to First Lady, Mrs. Sandra Granger as she explains the history of the Independence brass souvenir to the children. The children were quick to point out that the brass jaguars featured in the memento were similar to the one in the photograph on the wall, which prompted Mrs. Granger to explain that the jaguar is Guyana’s national animal and one of several ‘big cats’ found in Guyana and within the Guiana Shield.
