Holy Family Primary memorialises fallen student with peace garden

The downtown Kingston-based Holy Family Primary School has created a peace garden to honour the memory of 11-year-old Taysha Hughes who was killed during a flare-up of violence in Parade Gardens in June of last year.

The school, which placed third in the recently concluded Trees for Peace competition organised by the Violence Prevention Alliance (VPA) in collaboration with Peace and Love in Society (PALS) and the Ministry of Education, Information, Youth and Culture, was still reeling from the loss of Taysha, then a student at the school, when an opportunity presented itself to honour her life by participating in the competition launched on Peace Day in March of this year.
