For me Primary school in Trinidad was a great experience. I probably did not appreciate it then and took much for granted but the world was not to mirror the experience. What we learned at primary school served me all my life. CLR said that at eight years old he had mastered essay writing and indeed this is the result of a first class primary school education. Kudos to the teachers who work at the primary education and form the basis of our very society in the Caribbean. I can recall one my teachers from primary school who was a great model for me. I don't hesitate to call his name as for me he is a hero-Mr Baptiste from St. Joseph Boy's RC. I recall when I was leaving the school that he made only one request of me "to be a good ambassador for the old school." I had an assignment for my life which to this day I try to uphold.
