Bringing Christmas cheer to Salvation Army students

Being the season of giving, the Jamaica Tourist Board's (JTB) Montego Bay and Ocho Rios offices and the Carnival Cruise Lines brought smiles to the faces of scores of children at the Salvation Army Basic schools in both resort towns through a collaborative effort. This was much to the delight of both teachers and students, who welcomed the gesture and equally the visitors to their institutions. In showing their appreciation, the children raised their voices to the peak in singing a collection of Christmas carols, as they drummed up a repertoire of rhythms on their desks.

New Year Celebrations in Jamaica is something to remember for everyone. So, come on and
stay at this beautiful island.
