A LADY should always know how to carry herself, and look after her body. This was the message of 13-year-old Aamirah Davids, one of the learners who took part in Alpha Primary’s Extra-curriculum programme.

Tashreeqah Verrie is a beauty consultant who owns her very own studio, where she offers manicures, pedicures and facials among other treatments.

She was reeled in by the school in March. “I approached her with the aim of exposing our Grade 7 girls on how to groom themselves in deportment and etiquette,” said Rachel Vereen, Deputy principal of Alpha Primary.

Verrie agreed, and in April the programme took off. She went to the school every Monday after school, where she taught about twenty girls how to give different treatments.

She first wanted to teach the ladies how to look after themselves, in order for them to look after other people. “I wanted to teach them that they don’t need expensive products to care for themselves or their bodies,” said Verri.

“I taught them simple, yet strict instructions and how to use everyday house hold products to care for their skin and bodies.”

The girls have grown quite fond of Verrie, and can’t thank her enough for what she has taught them.

“Mrs Verrie taught me that my body’s position should at all time be perfect, and that I need to look after my nails, hair and body over all, and that I should always carry myself in a respectable manner,” said Hailie Hutton, one of the girls who participated in the programme.

Last week Thursday the girls had the conclusion of the programme where they pampered the teachers with different massages. This was also a chance for the girls to show off to the teachers what skills they have mastered.
