GG visits St Stephen’s
GOVERNOR GENERAL SIR Elliott Belgrave aimed for the hearts and minds of children at St. Stephen’s Primary School this morning with a message that reflected his own life story of success.
Invited to visit the school by principal Colin Jordan, Sir Elliott imparted words of advice to the morning assembly imploring the young students not to lose heart in the event of failure, keep out of bad company and not to engage in bullying.
In a firm tone the holder of Barbados’ highest office told the students bullying was wrong and should not be encouraged.
Resorting to the language of that generation Sir Elliott said it was “cool” to visit the school and he congratulated the principal and teachers for the “awesome” programme of poetry, singing and dance which was put on for him. (GC)
