Pleased to meet you, sir
Youth was Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave’s focus yesterday when he paid a special visit to St Stephen’s Primary school located in an area of Black Rock where he once lived.
Sir Elliott told excited students at the school’s morning assembly it was a departure from official duties such as visiting centenarians, but he said it was “cool” for him to visit the school since he was “a Black Rock and a St Stephen’s person” and had an interest in young people.
The children heard of the Governor General’s “successful journey” from humble beginnings to the highest office in Barbados. (GC)
