CARRIACOU - meeting with the principles

An urgent meeting was called and all the principles of the schools attended with less than 12 hours notice.

All teachers welcomed us and representative of the Ministry of Education, Mrs. Gertrude Niles was present. The topics covered included the damages met by schools and how these might be addressed post haste so as to accommodate OVER 200 students from Grenada.

There was also the need to address the supply concerns and furniture and furnishing needs, as many of the schools double as Hurricane shelters and were in pretty sad shape before the storm.

Head Teachers will document damages and prepare wish lists and Jenny will tour the schools with Mr. Patterson, tomorrow and photo-document the schools in question.

A suggestion was made to look into twinning schools from Barbados and Trinidad with schools in Carriacou, this was met with enthusiasm and with that in mind we agreed to create web pages for each school with a view of building on these pages as supplies are shipped and the situation in the schools eased by the help of the women's NGO's of the Caribbean.

We were surrounded by inspirational people, and not just the principles of the schools and the District Educational Officer, Mrs Gertrude Niles but the Dalai Lama...

Mother Teresa also wrote these words taken from the wall of the Health Centre in Gouyave:

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centreed.Forgive them anyway!

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway!

If you are successful, you will make some false friends and some true enemies. Succeed anyway!

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you. Be honest and frank, anyway!

What you spent years building, someone could destroy overnight. Build anyway!

The good you do today, people forget tomorrow. Do good anyway!

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough. Give the world the best you have got anyway!

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway!!!!
