Staff Christmas Treat
Members of staff of the St. Catherine Municipal Corporation joined with the staff at the Kingdom Builders Early Childhood Development Center in Rivoli to host a treat for the students of the institution.
The students seemed to enjoy themselves immensely especially in the bounce about and with the gifts that were given to them by our version of Santa and Mrs. Claus. Some of our staff could not resist being children again and bounced with the students.
