Photos: Premier & Minister Visit Elliot Primary

October 5, 2013

Yesterday [Oct 4] Elliot Primary School kicked off its Literacy Program with Premier Craig Cannonier and Deputy Premier Michael Dunkley as the special invited guests.

One highlight of the Assembly was an interview of both Premier Cannonier and Deputy Premier, Michael Dunkley. Students in Primary four through to Primary 6 asked both gentlemen questions related to their roles, family and politics.

Primary four student Rojini Dill-Pedro asked the Premier if he would consider opening up more places for children to go to and have fun, such as amusement parks, skates, parks and water parks.

Another question came from Danni Watson, a Primary 6 student who wanted to know what she would have to do in order to become the Premier of Bermuda later on in her life.

After the Assembly ended, the special guests took pictures with each class in the courtyard.

  2. Serious Though says:

    leadership with a style

    • Mazumbo says:

      Yes plenty style but no substance. LMAO

      • Concerned says:

        You can not even admit this leadership is far more hospitable and genuine than the former. I was at Bacardi when the former Premier Madam Cox was invited to the Capsule Anniversary, and many other events and she would barely acknowledge the hosts. Just stand there get in her car and leave. Miserable Personality she was as a leader. Inspired no one. I was a strong believer in the PLP, they and person like me made this situation we are in with our attitudes and behaviors towards others. Sorry you will never get my support ever again.

        More smear from “Mazumbo”.

        Following in the footsteps of the real Mazumbo, known for his dishonesty, smear and propaganda.

        Oh, wait. No, he wasn’t. The real Mazumbo was a good man who wanted a better Bermuda. This one is just a feeble, pale reflection, usurping the name for sick, political means.

    It may seem like just another photo op to all of you but it meant the world to my daughter who attends P4 Elliot (second pic, front row, second from the left, striped shirt)and she represents the next, next generation of Bermudians. The kids loved that they put on the shirts provided for them and were very proud and honoured by their visit.
