March 9. 2015 Meeting & Grand Bahama Premier of Every Child Counts film

Our March 9th, 2015 meeting for The Grand Bahama American Women’s Club will be held at the Ruby Swiss Restaurant and will feature the island’s premiere viewing of Every Child Counts—an inspiring documentary that will be presented by the film’s Director of Photography, Paul Mockler.

Every Child Counts, tells the inspiring and uplifting tale of a group of parents in a small island community who were faced with a bleak situation; other children bullied their learning-disabled children, and their teachers weren’t trained to deal with them. Most of the time, they were told their children should not come to school at all. The film traces the humble origins of the school, named Every Child Counts, which began with just a handful of volunteers and concerned parents, to its present-day status as a beacon of hope to the nation and a shining example of what a school can be. The teachers, parents and students share their stories of struggles and success, and we see how the children have blossomed at the school, and how they have become ambassadors for changing attitudes in the community.
