Supermarket Day at Norman Gardens Primary

Jamaica’s Promise | August 16, 2013
When Jennifer Vassell-Reid began thinking up ways to motivate her primary school students several ideas came to mind. But among them, one kept sticking out. It was something she had seen done at Operation Restoration School, with quite remarkable results for the children. Convinced it could work at Norman Gardens Primary, she got to work planning it and putting it into action. That was ten years ago, but that bright idea is still in action today – the Norman Gardens Supermarket Day.
