Captain Conch and his friend Baby Shark appearance at the different island schools was part of the San Pedro Town Council (SPTC) Children’s Week activities and their new Child-Friendly Secretariat as well as to promote proper garbage disposal and keep the island clean. Throughout the entire morning, Captain Conch, along with the help of guests visited most of the primary schools on the island. At the schools, the students would get an introduction by Jorge Aldana from the SPTC, followed by a short message from Mayor Daniel Guerrero of the importance of keeping the environment clean. Captain Conch and his friend Baby Shark then entertained the children with some interactive and fun performances.
