Tourism books delivered to our elementary schools

September 30, 2022

On September 29th, 2022 Tourism Corporation Bonaire (TCB) visited different elementary schools on the island to hand out the new Tourism book titled “Turismo na Boneiru, mi Kultura, mi Enkanto!” to the youngsters of group 5 to 8.

This is the fourth edition of the tourism book ‘Turismo na Boneiru’, which was produced by TCB in collaboration with SKAL and was written by local author Denise de Jongh-Rekwest. Education is key and therefore TCB wishes to continue to invest in our school curriculum by providing tourism related books and reading materials.

CEO of TCB, Miles Mercera, Commissioner of Tourism Hennyson Thielman, and Commissioner of Culture Pablo ‘James’ Kroon joined by Miss Tourism Bonaire Sunniva Manuel to hand out the first copies of the books to the principals of each elementary school.

This book is a great tool for our youngsters to learn more about tourism, our local heritage and culture. Happy reading to all our kids!
