Hellshire Enviro Fair 2014

Students of Alpha Infant perform a creative item celebrating environmental awareness to the delight of patrons. Alpha won the Infant Category of the UDC’s Schools’ Enviro Competition in June 2014 at Hope Zoo, St.Andrew. The occasion was the inaugural Crocodile Conservation and Enviro Fair. Alpha submitted two projects with the winning project focusing on recycling tyres for use in the children’s playground, which was not available for use before the recycling project was implemented. Hundreds of patrons, including students from infant, primary and secondary schools from Kingston and St. Andrew and St Catherine turned out to support the air which is aimed at encouraging eco-friendly practices and environmental awareness. The event also focused on increasing awareness of the importance of crocodiles which help to clean the mangroves thus ensuring the continuation of a healthy fish population. The combined event enjoyed sponsorship from entities such as the Urban Development Corporation, National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA), Hope Zoo Preservation Foundation, Tourism Enhancement Fund, Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort and Spa, Jamaica Public Service, Caribbean Coastal Area Management and Port Royal Marine Labs, , Port Authority of Jamaica, Barita Investments, Hot Off the Press, Fly Jamaica, Print Now, Riu Ocho Rios, Palace Amusement, Subaru Owners Club of Jamaica, J.
