PM Douglas visits schools, police station, furniture maker in St. Peter’s/Stapleton
Basseterre, St. Kitts (CUOPM) — St. Kitts and Nevis’ Prime Minister the Right Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas had sound words of advice to pre-schoolers and primary school students.
“You can be anything you want to be,” was the theme throughout his visit to the classrooms of the St. Peter’s Day Care Center and the Deane-Glasford Primary School.
Prime Minister Douglas, who was accompanied by Minister of Education, Sen. the Hon. Nigel Carty and the St. Kitts-Nevis Labour Party representative for St. Peter’s, Dr. Terrance Drew first stopped at the Day Care Center where he read to the first class and spoke to the tots.
Dr. Douglas read the book “Stepping Stones “and then asked questions about the story as he went along, much to the fascination of the group who displayed apt attention and answered intelligently.
At the Deane-Glasford Primary School, Prime Minister Douglas, Minister Carty and Dr. Drew spoke of the need to be focused in attaining their goals to be successful.
“I can be whatever I want to be,” was the refrain from each of the classes visited with students indicating their goals to be policemen, medical doctors, teachers, prime minister, veterinarian, soldier and criminal prosecutor.
Prime Minister Douglas also visited the St. Peter’s Clinic, the Stapleton Police Station, a local furniture maker and spoke with farmers.
