Sinckler fun day for 11-Plus students

Minister of Finance Christ Sinckler may not have given Barbadians any relief in his recent Estimates. However, the Member of Parliament provided some “stress” relief for some 300 primary school students of his St Michael North-West constituency who sat the 11-Plus Exam on Tuesday.

Today the Class 4 students of Deacon’s Primary, St Stephen’s Primary and Eagle Hall Primary schools, dressed in bright orange, blue and white T-shirts, enjoyed the facilities of the Casa Grande Hotel in St Philip, including the bumper cart rides and bowling.

Sinckler said the fun day, which is in its sixth year, was his way of allowing the students to have “a little relaxation” and “get over all of the nerves they had for the exam and the chatter about which exam was harder”.

“It gives them a chance to unwind and to enjoy a day of fun and relaxation. We coordinated with the schools and teachers, and we had some parents who came along as well, and members of the St Michael North-West staff and the St Michael North-West Development Foundation,” said Sinckler.

      Greenidge Starr I couldn’t care less what they utilize the money to do. When it comes to both parties if they play the ass I voice my opinion. I am far from a yardfowl because I dont cast my support behind people who don’t have constituents interest at heart. So you take that comment and stuff it where the monkey stuff the nuts.

      On behave of all teachers I apologise for us not doing our best to teach you to be more literate when you went to school back in 1801. I hope someday that you can release all that bitterness and hate you feel towards members of my profession and finally rest in peace… Sorry, I mean, find some peace!!

      Feed the ones you know and encourage others to do the same. I don’t know why the hell you people don’t understand why you live in a community and that you also have a role to play in the development of your community.

    Minister, yah right to carry out the children from your constituency and celebrate with them. It is something you do on a yearly basis and this year should not have been any different. If you didn’t do it the negative-minded, small-minded people would have talked the same shyte. The other Ministers should do likewise for their constituents and put their monies where their mouths are. At Christmastime most politicians from both sides have Christmas parties in their constituencies. Do we condemn them for that??

    There will always be poor people around us and we are in a position to know them because we live next to them. A politician on the other hand would have to be informed of those who need help because they hardly ever live in their constituencies. How many of us can afford to assist our neighbours who are less fortunate and do nothing, but throw away the leftovers and keep things until they spoil when we can share.

    They are some people who live in a cess pool of negativity and no matter what happens in life all they can do is see negativity. You keep far from those types of people because they are poison and all they ever do is put negative energy out there. Avoid them like the plague.

    The only way our country will improve is when we see ourselves as our brother’s keeper and stop thinking that politicians have to do everything in this country. Your hungry neighbour will break into your property to steal not that of the politician. With progress we have become a selfish people and have lost the value of community. Years ago everybody used to be fed from every household in the village. There was love , sharing and caring. Today we don’t even know our neighbours. All of us are to blame for the breakdown in Barbados not just the politicians.
