Providence School plays hosts to Trident
DEPUTY CHAIRMAN of the 50th Anniversary Independence Coordinating Committee, Senator Dr Esther Byer, took students of Providence Elementary School on a history tour yesterday.
Byer, the Minister of Labour, asked them various trivia questions concerning Barbados’ Independence, previous prime ministers, the National Flag, National Pledge and National Anthem.
The Francia Plantation, St George school was host to the commemorative Broken Trident which Byer said represented Barbados’ freedom from England, telling the rest of the world the nation could handle its own affairs.
“We are reminding Barbadians that, for the past 50 years, we have done a good job. We have a lot to be proud of and all of us living here must remember that,” she said.
