Grades 5 & 6 Field Trip to Abaco.
On Thursday, March 3, 2016, twenty students along with six parents and two teachers traveled to Abaco for a field trip. The group drove to the dock in McLean's Town, Grand Bahama and then traveled by boat over to Crown Haven Abaco. On arriving on the island the group took a ferry over to Green Turtle Cay were they visited the Alton Lowe Museum and the Sculpture Garden. The students also had a brief tour of the Green Turtle Cay Primary School. On the cay students were able to get first hand experience on how the Loyalists lived on that small settlement. The group also went to Treasure Cay for a short Tour and had fun on Coco Beach. The experience was indeed a fantastic one!
Week of Prayer was held during the week of February 29-March 4, 2016 under the theme "We are a chosen generation". The messages were presented to us by Pastor Andrew Burrows - Executive Secretary of the North Bahamas Conference. The messages were timely and on point. Students were reminded that they are special and not to sell themselves short because God created them special.

Grand Bahama Academy Students visiting the "Home of the Aged" during Literacy Week January 25-29, 2016
January 25-29, 2016, was celebrated Literacy Week at Grand Bahama Academy under the theme "Creating Excellent Minds Through Literacy". Throughout the week students were encouraged and challenged to allow literacy to empower, change and evoke discipline in their lives.
There was a remarkable display of genius as students showcased their talents, highlighting the fact that literacy involves more than reading because it enhances positive and logical thinking, assists in problem solving, and develops our creativity.
The week’s activities included students visiting to the “Home of the Aged”, distributing copies of “The Great Controversy” book, parents and stakeholders reading to our students, and a Bible character dress-up and banner display.
The objective behind celebrating literacy week was to help students understand that through literacy, imagination, creativity, vocabulary, IQ, and spiritually can all be enhanced and utilized in achieving individual and collectives goals. It was a week during which the seed of excellence was planted, and we expect to continually nurture its growth.
Literacy week was certainly a blast!
