A Gleaner reader's milestone

Thirty-seven children aged five will move on to primary education from the Denham Town Basic School. June Daley, patron of the institution, hands out a prize to one of the outstanding achievers. Daley, who was the guest speaker at the school-leaving ceremony recently, has been actively engaged in fund-raising in London to assist the school's much-needed development. To date, she has raised funds to purchase a stove for the nutrition programme and to repaint the walls of the school with murals depicting childlike characters and themes to support the curriculum delivery to students. - Contributed
