Minister Jacobs Takes Part In Rights of the Child Bike-a-thon

Minister of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports Sports Hon. Silveria Jacobs took part over the weekend in the Day Care Bike-a-thon and Family Day at the Raoul Illidge Sports Complex on Saturday.


This activity was the last of the Rights of the Child Commemoration program which started in the month of November 2012.

The Bike-a-thon commenced at the Grand Marche Supermarket on Bush Road at 9:00 am and ended at the Raoul Illidge Sports Complex with a Family fun day.

Management of various day care centers participated with their students who were also accompanied by their parents. The children dressed in a school uniform could be seen on their bikes beautifully decorated for the occasion.

Some parents were also on their bikes as the Soualiga Youth Drum Band marched their way in the parade. Minister Silveria Jacobs was at the front of the parade leading by example.
