THE IMPORTANCE of providing resources to schools, especially for the underprivileged, was emphasised on Friday night by outgoing principal of the Cave Hill Campus of the University of the West Indies, Sir Hilary Beckles.

His own personal experience as a boy, he told a gathering of old scholars of the Coleridge & Parry School, demonstrated this and conditioned his approach at Cave Hill head as protector of “the children of the poor”.

Sir Hilary was speaking at a cocktail reception at Pure Ocean Restaurant at Divi Southwinds Hotel, where he was “celebrated” for his elevation to the position of vice chancellor of the entire UWI system. Also honoured were newly appointed registrar of CXC Glenroy Cumberbatch and new deputy commander of the Regional Security System, Bertie Hinds. (RRM)
