Flow is hosting its annual Back-to-School Fair this weekend to provide assistance to students and parents ahead of the re-opening of schools on Monday.
The two-day event is scheduled for Friday, September 2 at the Derek Walcott Square, and Saturday, September 3 outside the Flow Exchange on New Dock Road.
It will be a major community event and the focal point will be a health and wellness zone designed to offer free dental check-ups and eye examinations to the many children who are expected to attend. It is being organized in partnership with Dr. Naomi Michelle from Every Day Smiles and the St. Lucia Blind Welfare Association.
In addition, the boys will receive free haircuts and the girls hair braiding, and there will also be complimentary school supplies available. There will also be a wide variety of entertainment, including bouncing castles, face painting, gaming and much more, as an added treat.
Special deals will be available on Flow handsets and broadband packages.
“Getting children ready for the new school year is the main focus of our Back-to-School Fair,” said Flow St. Lucia Marketing & Communications Executive, Shermalyn Sidonie-John. “It’s designed as a one-stop shop for all back-to-school needs, and a place for families to come and enjoy some quality, fun entertainment. Every year we look at how we can help students meet this need and we leverage our partnerships to ensure that as many children as possible benefit from this event. Flow is a community-oriented family brand and one of our key missions is supporting education at all levels,” she added.
