"Changing the way we interact with people!"
"Sir, sir!" the little voice chirped. The
toddler whose nose could barely reach
the top of the table was waving a page
with a big blue letter A on it.
She wanted to show principal Wayne
Patrick Jordan how well she was colouring
her alphabet letters.
"Yes, darling, he replied. "That s very

The children love having visitors, so
they can show off their drawings, do puz-
zles with them, and sing the ABC song.
They don t have enough tables, so some
eat lunch on sheets spread on the floor.
But that s not so bad.
At the first school that Jordan founded,
the All in One Development Centre, also
on the Beetham, the pupils had no toilets
when the doors first opened.
The children used buckets. Once, a little
girl fell in.
Now, ten years
later, you would

Jordan, a Servol outreach officer, decided to open
the new school because he realised there were still
lots of children on the Beetham who were not
getting the best head-start in life.
The Each One Teach One Special school has
about 60 children---babies, toddlers and some older
boys and girls with special needs.
The pupils come from Beetham, Laventille, and
Morvant. Jordan is principal, teacher, manager, jan-
itor, fund-raiser and do-it-all technician. Using
cardboard and paper, he built a tall column of a
Santa Claus for the children.
His wife and daughter also volunteer at the school.
He has no day off. On weekends, the school is also
used for community projects, such as a parenting
A new registered charitable organisation called
the Children s Ark has adopted the Each One Teach
One Special School as a project.
The Ark is raising about $90,000 towards improv-
ing the infrastructure of the school, and providing
books, educational toys and working tools.
For example, the children need tables and chairs
to suit their size and additional toilets.
The floor is pitted and scarred by splashes of
cement, so Jordan covered the worst of it with a
swath of bright floral carpeting.
Ceiling fans would make the place almost lux-
urious. And there are never enough crayons, paper
and books for bright little minds to exercise their
So, instead of that lovely, expensive present you
were going to buy me as a reward for bringing cheer
to your lives every Monday, make a donation to
the Ark for the Beetham special school.
The $300 you intended to use for office deco-
rations would be better spent on another baby s
And, if you happen to be trained in early childhood
education, and you are not the officious type but
rather willing to roll up your sleeves and stick with
something worthwhile, I bet Jordan would appreciate
some free help.
The Children s Ark (whose president is Simone
de la Bastide, wife of the former Chief Justice) is
awaiting your generous donations.
The Ark has no office, no staff, no overheads.
Just volunteers. You can write the cheques in the
name of The Children s Ark, and send to 8 Nutmeg
Avenue, Haleland Park, Maraval.
Do it now, and feel better about the sometimes
crummy world we live in.
Give a little, it will help a lot
