    THE PRIME Minister of St. Vincent and The Grenadines, Ralph Gonsalves, made a special visit to Mona High School on Thursday, March 30. He was in the island to attend the swearing-in of Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller.

    The reason for Gonsalves' visit was to express his condolence over the death of Jordano Flemming, a grade 10 student of Mona High, who was murdered in March on his way home from church.

    Gonsalves explained in his address to the school that it was the image of Jordano in his casket which really grabbed his interest, because of Jordano's resemblance to his own son.

    SENSITIVE WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT

    The Vincentian Prime Minister's address to the whole school offered sensitive words of encouragement, delivered with a sincere warmth. He told the students to enjoy life whilst remembering Jordano by taking "inspiration from Jordano's short life."

    Dr. Gonsalves greeted numerous pupils during his school tour. Every girl who had the luck of being embraced, received a kiss, followed by howls of approval from her peers. One could have mistaken the Prime Minister for a rock star at that point.

    Gonsalves astonished the pupils by announcing his plan to arrange for some of them to visit his country. He also made an offer to Mona High to be twinned with Georgetown Secondary School in his constituency, a link he wanted to be "unbreakable."

    INTUITIVE DANCING

    Shortly after the uplifting address, three boys burst onto the scene performing intuitive dancing. Dr. Gonsalves enjoyed it so much, he requested an encore, then to everyone's surprise, he joined in the dance routine, which created roars of excitement.

    The Prime Minister then gave a heart-felt talk to Jordano's former classmates in the school library. With words of encouragement, he advised the students to be "steadfast, focused, diligent and creative."

    Before leaving, Dr. Gonsalves spoke with The Gleaner. He said he was looking forward to Mrs. Simpson Miller's inauguration later that day, and was delighted for her. He described Jamaica's seventh Prime Minister as "a fine leader, who listens well and has love in her heart." Dr. Gonsalves emphasised that the Prime Minister-designate had a rare ability to "draw noble and good qualities out of her people."

    The pupils really appreciated Gonsalves' visit, and described the self confessed "unorthodox man" as "friendly, magnificent and kind."
