Paget Primary takes dose of health history
The achievements of black Bermudians will be highlighted for Black History Month at Paget Primary School, which is transforming its classrooms into a museum on Thursday.
The school’s third annual Black History Museum will honour Bermudian figures living and gone.
Their ranks include master kite-maker Eugene O’Connor and the late activist Roosevelt Brown, veteran nurse Beverley Howell and Sharon Wilson, one of Bermuda’s top artists.
Yesterday, students toured health facilities around the island to learn about Ms Howell and the demanding careers of nurses, according to Haley Telford, a paraeducator at the school.
“Each of our class year levels will be honouring someone,” Ms Telford said.
“For Nurse Howell, we have transformed a classroom into a hospital. We are taking our students out to various places where nurses work to see the different environments.”
Ms Howell was awarded Nurse of the Year 2016.
The school’s Black History Museum runs from 9am to 2pm.
