The boys and girls did not miss the opportunity to show off their singing talents.

Members of the council were fascinated by the children’s display of talents. Some, though very young, were very good guitar players.

Educational gifts such as exercise books, pens, pencils and erasers were distributed among the children after the games and singing contest.

Three children who had just celebrated their birthdays joined hands to cut a cake toward the end of the afternoon.
The fun afternoon ended with prayers led by Mrs Zelia.

Council members have promised that similar visits will be organised next year.
