Zarah celebrates St Ann Bee win with a patty
OCHO RIOS, St Ann: ZARAH WALLACE is a seven-year-old third-grader who loves colouring and her favourite colour is pink, “because it is pretty”.
She is a part of her school’s art club. After winning the parish title she asked for her favourite treat, a cheese patty.
Her coach has been working with her since March of this year. This is Tomlinson’s Christian Academy’s fourth consecutive win.
Coach on winning: “Happy, overwhelmed, overjoyed, elated, all the happy words in the dictionary; that’s how I feel. We always say, to God be the Glory, we always put God first in our club.
“I saw the potential in her from she was in kindergarten; she always has a book. They say when a child loves to read, the potential is great.
Mother: “I am extremely overwhelmed and happy for both her [Zarah] and Tayshaun and Ms Lawrence. I think they all did well today. Especially Ms Lawrence, she’s so dedicated.” Zarah Wallace of Tomlinson’s Christian Academy is The Gleaner’s Children’s Own Spelling Bee champion for St Ann.
