Tola, I remember when I went to East Ruimveldt Sec, we had gardening as a subject and we learned about composting etc. Banna, my family and many families of the kids also, complained about how we are not going to school to learn how to plant. Dude, I wish they teach more of this in schools, teach em survival skills. Not everyone makes it in the business world.
Cain, In additional to my autobiography and other short stories, I just wrote a 'short story' for our kids about my certificates and employment starting with Albion primary school.
Years later when I was taking pictures, the school was still doing gardening, composting, wood work, book binding, hammock making, painting, drama, etc. Displayed on what was called 'Arts and crafts day/night' every year to parents, who bought some of the stuff.
The certificates and some photos became part of my story of 20 pages.
I just bought 6 large Rubbermaid tubs for my historical material and collectables. Rass, I might need a semi to move. This included special boxes for the kids designated stuff.
These Canadian born kids will know just about everything regarding my Guyanese/India family, with pictures and video, including their young life.
I strongly believe every Guyanese parents should document their family history, so their 'overseas' children will know about their life in Guyana. Because when dem dead, who gun tell their children, as adults.
