Reg. 10 teachers display creativity at march and rally

DPI, Guyana, Saturday, October 5, 2019

The streets of Linden were brought alive on Friday morning as nursery, primary and secondary school teachers from across Region 10 displayed tremendous stamina and imagination as they marched and danced their way to the Mackenzie Sports Club Ground (MSC), where a rally was held.

Their very creative costumes with accessories, banners, placards and dance choreographies caught the attention of residents and their students who lined Republic Avenue and other streets en route to MSC ground to view the colourfully energetic parade.

Led by officers of the Department of Education, Region 10, who were donned in African inspired costumes with head wraps and colourful long skirts, the teachers, representing various characters, showed that they are not only fit for the classroom but can keep a crowd entertained. Joining them were students of the Cyril Potter College of Education (CPCE).

Stealing the show were the teachers of the Amelia’s Ward Primary School with their ‘granny fit’ costumes, accessorised with white wigs, spectacles and walking aids. Their dance choreography to the popular calypso by the same name received an overwhelming response from the crowd and their fellow teachers as well.

Other schools that stood out included One Mile Primary School’s ‘Guyana Amazon Warriors; The Pine Street Nursery ‘Sailors’; the Mackenzie High School’s ‘Construction Workers’ and the Wismar Hill Primary School’s ‘Flight Crew’.

The annual march and rally culminated activities for Teacher’s Week 2019 which was held under the theme,” Young teachers, the future of the profession.” It also coincides with the observation of World Teacher’s Day on October 5.
