The meaning of Christmas was evident at the recent open house at the Sunrise Adult Training Centre that serves adults with disabilities and special needs. The clients were joined by the youthful members of the Rotaract Blue.

First to decorate the centre for the Christmas season, then to greet visitors.

The Sunrise visit was part of Rotaract's Open Arms Programme that seeks to recognise outstanding persons with disabilities and those who work with them.

Rotaract Assistant Director of Community Service Marzeta Bodden said about the event, "Because it's so close to the holidays, we decided to make this visit about the Christmas season."

Also celebrating the season with an open house were the students of the Lighthouse School, which serves students with disabilities and special needs through the age of 18. Tours of the school gave guests the opportunity to view the children's artwork and reading projects.

Guests touring the school included the Minister for Education, Training and mployment, the Hon. Rolston Anglin; Ministry Chief Officer Mary Rodrigues and Speaker of the House, the Hon. Mary Lawrence, JP, in addition to the public.
