St Gabriel’s Primary School unveiled a plaque yesterday to honour former Prime Minister, the late David Thompson.
Principal Angela C. Blackett said it was part of a strategic plan.
“We were talking about raising the school’s legacy as we have a history of notable graduates in society. Today we focus on one of our most celebrated graduates,” she said.
Thompson graduated from the school in 1972. Blackett said the commemorative plaque was a gift to his legacy and the nation as a whole.
Thompson’s widow Mara unveiled the plaque in a brief ceremony attended by daughters Oya and Osa-Marie as well as Thompson’s mother Margaret Knight and sister Angela Hynam. (CA)
