The country's most
Continued from last week
In my continuing discussions
with some primary school children
from Lambeau Anglican Primary,
Mrs Romeo, the school s principal,
brings a little girl to me so that I
can ask her what she thinks of the
school s motto---"The Best Always."
"I m six, but I m going to be seven
on Sunday," the girl informs me. For
her, being the best always means
being kind, obeying her teacher and
"Sharing?" I ask.
"Yes. I share my snacks with my
I ask her what she wants to be
when she grows up.
Girl: A doctor ... so if my mummy
and daddy get sick, I can help them."
Me: I guess they help you too
when you re sick.
Girl: Yes. They give me medica-
tion, water and take me to the doc-
"And what s something else they
give you that they don t have to
buy?" I ask, thinking she might say
something like "Love" ... but clearly
she s not so cliché.
The little girl laughs, as if I ve just
said I don t know what an avocado
is.Me: Am I supposed to know what
Me: Because everyone else knows?
Girl: Yes! (Still laughing)
Me: I know it must be some kind
of bush, but I ve never seen or tasted
it.Girl: It does taste bitter.
Me: They make tea for you with
it?Girl: Not tea! It s a bush! They
boil it in the pot.
Me: You can make a tea by boiling
bush in a pot.
Girl: It s fiddlewood! Daddy pick
it in the bush.
Having had my herbal education,
I move on to the next interviewee,
an eight-year old boy who informs
me that the thing he s best at is
football and that the best thing
about school is learning.
"And what s best about home?"
"It don t be hot. In the back have
a gully. We have a big garden. Lots
of trees and plenty things like
snakes, owl and gouti. I catch a
gouti before. It was jumping by the
mango tree. I put a rope and a cage
thing, stand up on the tree and let
go it and wait til it jump up and
the bottom part close down."
He tells me that he still has the
agouti, as a pet, but that it has no
Subsequent to my conversations
with the Lambeau children, I called
around to different primary schools
to see what their mottos are. Inter-
estingly, three other schools (L Anse
Fourmi Methodist Primary, Black
Rock Government Primary, Bon
Accord Government Primary) all
have the same motto: "The Best
May the following mottos be a
list of inspiring guidelines for all of
us in whatever we do---today and
"Anything that is worth doing is
worth doing well." (Castara Gov-
ernment Primary School)
"Our best." (Charlotteville
Methodist Primary School)
"Success comes to us by the will
to rise whenever we fall." (Hope AC
"Aim high reach for the sky." (Belle
Garden AC Primary School)
"Unite to Excel." (Mason Hall
Government Primary School)
Mrs Charles, Mason Hall s prin-
cipal, tells me that every morning
after they sing the national anthem,
the children recite the school s
pledge and motto. She reminds them
to not just say it, but to give it
"Children must learn to come
together for the best," she says.
"When you pulling and tugging,
things don t work well. If you have
that motto in front of you all the
time, and it s in your heart and not
your head, it will move you to do
the right thing."
The best always
Children must learn to come
together for the best.
