The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints began a school outreach tour yesterday, Monday, January 13, 2020, offering guidance to students of the Piaye Combined School.

“Brush your teeth every day and eat healthy… also pray every morning and night,” Elder David Nish told the enthusiastic students, adding that that if they eat healthy it will prevent them from getting type 2 diabetes.

He identified some of the foods and drinks that they should avoid eating too much as sweets, chips, cakes, lollipops and soda.

“These foods are not too good for your health,” Elder Nish stressed, adding that they should not use their teeth to open bottled drinks.

In a brief interview with Loop News after the session, Elder Nish said that the activity was part of the church community outreach program, which will be done in 16 primary schools around the island.

He said the church was very excited to share their knowledge with the students and the session also included the singing of hymns and the reading of the scriptures by the students.

Elder Nish said he was very impressed by the level of interest the students showed in the activity, describing them as well- behaved.

The church donated toothpaste, toothbrushes and mugs to the students and earlier this week donated a stove, a fridge, a cake blender and a microwave to the Piaye Secondary School.

Over the years, the church has made a number of donations to various organizations around the island.
