King told his captivated audience “I want you to believe in your ability as much as I believe in you, every one of you has special talents. I encourage you to remain disciplined and work hard, confident that you have my unwavering support at all times”.

The Parliamentary Representative also toured the institution to assess the infrastructural needs. Pending a formal submission for the Principal, the MP said he will work closely with the Ministry of Education and other partners to bring some much needed upgrades to the school.

King also announced plans for a “Breakfast Programme”, cognizant that many students start the day without a proper meal. He said the programme aims to ensure that this will soon be a thing of the past.

Support for education initiatives accounts for the largest amount of financial resources spent by the Castries North MP.

  1. Election is near so the Cambridge analytica strategy has started. What did he do for the last 3 years ?
    King sing for your supper, you know you are not qualify to get a job anywhere else except in politics.

  2. I always liked King although he tends to be a bit soft. I also like the mayor, however, sometimes he likes to huff and puff. I think both guys are effective. Thanks Mr. King for your contribution. Every penny counts with kids in poor resourced areas.

    • It’s a good thing to do, but I’m not sure why is this news. I know so many people that have given a lot more to their communities and have remained anonymous. Must be getting close to election season. A little bit of good news does not hurt I guess.

  3. I personally know of private individuals giving over 10,000 US in donations with no need for a press release. It’s a good gesture but the press release just makes it into a Public relations stunt for good press.

  4. Yes Sir, you have lead by example; as a parent and grand parent, i thank you. FOR THEY ARE A LEADERS OF TOMORROW!
