BRIDGETOWN - 7 July 2011
Over seventy Children of the Unique Helping Hands Summer Camp gathered on the grounds of Harrison College on 7 July 2011 to learn about Germany. By invitation of Camp Director Penelope Howell, the Honorary Consul of the Federal Republic of Germany, Mr Andreas Kusay, greeted the children and teachers. To start the morning session, the children watched a short informative video outlining the most important facts about Germany. Following the film, Mr Kusay spoke to the children about Germany and its role in the world economy. He gave examples of German brands and products Made in Germany, significant inventions, famous artists as well as show biz and sports celebrities. Mr Kusay also told the children about German culture, traditions and food. To give the children a taste of German sweets, each one was given a small goodie bag to take home. The presentation was followed by a quiz with big chocolate bars as prizes for the correct answers.
To add some more fun and excitement to the event, the CEO of The Brewster Trust, Mr Axel Bernhardt, presented Germany’s most popular sport - soccer. In a one-hour session, he taught the children the Soccer 101 also followed by a quiz.
The children asked a lot of questions, in particular with regard to the differences between Barbados and Germany. They enjoyed a camp day full of learning, fun and play.
