Calvary Temple Parties with CitCo

The Belize City Council was sharing the Christmas spirit in the city this morning. The holiday cheer took them over to Regent Street West at the Calvary Temple Primary School where they hosted the entire student population of about one hundred and fifty students for lunch, gifts and goodie bags. We stopped in at the festivities to find out what this kind of cheer mean for the small south side school.

“Today we are having lunch with the kids and then we are going to give them a gift as a part of the 12 Days of Christmas that the Mayor has implemented from the first to the eighteenth of December. This came about, about three months I decided that last year we did Bethel School and so I said we needed to go into school – one of the schools that really need a little support from anyone. And as a part of Mesopotamia Division, I realize that there is a school in this corner that it seems everybody has forgotten, so I decided we are going to do Calvary Temple School this year.”

“The students and staff alike are appreciative for what the Belize City Council is doing today. This is the season of giving and they are happy that they are receiving turkey dinner, as well as a gift today.”


Andrea Polanco

“For them to get this kind of joy and cheer at Christmas; what does this mean for them personally?”


Georgette Wright

“For most of them this will be the only gift that they will be given and so I am sure that they will appreciate what they get and they are truly grateful for what they are being given today.”


Andrea Polanco

“So, when we spoke with the Councillor he mentioned that Calvary Temple is tucked away in a little corner and a lot of times you guys are perhaps overlooked?”


Georgette Wright

“Yes we are. We are a small school and we are in a little corner but we have been here since 1952 and so that is a long time. And, so yes, sometimes we are forgotten but for the most part I am happy that we are remembered at least for this season and I am sure that they are grateful today.”


The lunch and gifts were sponsored by the Belize City Council and Belize Waste Control.
