A standing ovation


Share post:

GOVERNOR GENERAL Sir Elliott Belgrave normally sits in quiet sophistication during his national primary school visits, but yesterday he was driven to his feet after a commendable performance by the Wilkie Cumberbatch Primary School all boys choir.

During a visit to the Pine, St Michael, Sir Elliot was so impressed with the entertainment package that rose to his feet.

But the performances were indeed delivered with much panache and zeal.

The celebration, which paid tribute to both the school’s and Barbados’ 50th anniversaries, brought many a smile to the face of Sir Elliot.

“I sat there and enjoyed the entertainment you provided for this occasion. It was an excellent programme which was well executed. The students who participated did so extremely well along with the teachers …,” he complimented.

Sir Elliott also appreciated the dance performed to American entertainer Pharrell Williams’ Happy.

“It makes me regret being old,” he quipped.

Sir Elliott advised the pupils to strive for excellence while avoiding bad habits.

During his remarks, District Education Officer Lomer Rock encouraged the students to remain relentless in chasing their dreams.  (MR)
