GG visits Belmont
BELMONT PRIMARY SCHOOL hosted a special guest as Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave stopped by today.
The school treated the representative of the Head of State to poetry, songs and dance from nursery to class four.
In his address, Sir Elliott told the children to read “good” books and learn to speak and write Standard English as this was Barbados’ first language and was necessary to land a good job.
He also told the class four students set to attend secondary school their journey was now beginning.
“Do not think this is the end of the road as the road ahead will not be easy. There will be more subjects at a higher standard and new languages to learn so you can’t relax. Put your hearts and minds into your work and you will succeed,” he said. (CA)
