Internal Mashramani Celebration 2009

The Ptolemy Reid Rehabilitation Centre conducted an internal Mashramani Celebration on February 20, 2009 in lieu of participating in the Mashramani Children’s Costume Competition. This was a result of there being insufficient funds to prepare a float to be entered in this year’s national Republic Day celebrations. Nevertheless, residents, students and members of staff of PRRC thoroughly enjoyed the event which included the donning of colourful costumes, a March along Carmichael Street (South along the eastern carriageway and north along the western carriageway unto Middle Street and back to the Centre) followed by dancing, a mini concert and refreshments.Mashramani 2009
Children and members of staff from various departments all contributed items to the concert which included folk songs by the Nurses’ Choir, modeling by the students of the Vocational Unit and a presentation on the different occupations of Guyanese by the students of the Special Education Unit, amongst other cultural items.
