"Nobody can make
until you're happy
--- Author Unknown
At just five years old, Khaleesi
Webb has had so much to deal
with. From being born with spina
bifida to being rejected by three
primary schools, life has been a
headache for Khaleesi and her
Robert Singh: No child should be
deprived of an education. I hope she
does well, and I thank the school for
stepping up to accept her.
Laura Lyn: God has a way of
working things out. They try to stop
her but it was not the right time. God
has the last say. To God be the glory
great things he has done. Good luck
sweetie, you have a chance to get an
education, do your best.
Lizbeth Samuel: What a beau-
tiful lil sweetie, be blessed, God will
make a way.
Dana Charles: Babygirl will do
great. God is indeed a good God God.
Aall smilies on her face, she is so ex-
Neera Gunness: Good luck angel,
you will do good.
Taitt Rochelle: How backward! A
child should never be rejected from
being able to access an education! If
the school she was finally accepted
into was built to accommodate kids
with special needs, why is the bus
service not suitably equipped We can
jump for joy now because she was
accepted but the reality is that this
little girl and her parents will have so
many more hurdles in their way if the
community doesn't step up to help
Lynnet Hessic: Happy for you,
Baby Girl. For every challenge that
you have faced you are stronger and
braver than many adults. May God
continue to bless you and keep you
Umilta Smith: God bless her and
the school family.
Merlina Robinson: God is good
and will help you. Even your class-
mates will be mindful and inclusive
in their interactions with you. We
love you baby; you can do it, in Jesus'
Annie R Kandhai: All the best,
you'll do great and the challenges
will make you stronger than ever.
Step on them like stepping stones.
Ksha Superfinelady Orr: I'm
elated she got in to a school and I'm
positive she will excel.
'Foolishness went on'
Joint Select Committee mem-
ber Franklin Khan yesterday de-
scribed the former Port Authori-
ty of T&T (PATT) board under the
chairmanship of Christine Sa-
hadeo as being "dysfunctional."
Dave Sorillo: Christine Sahadeo
is a real straightforward person, so I
feel the other members of the board
could not handle that.
Desmond Brathwaite: Some-
times I does feel like de old lady in
the shop. I could do a better job than
these educated people.
Renaldo Matadeen: Not sure
why TT governments appoint one of
their own to investigate things that
should be done independently. This
is an archaic mentality that should
never have been allowed decades ago.
Saleemah Saied: Must be dys-
functional, you just can't put round
pegs in square hole, they would stick
and disrupt the system.
Maureen Berkeley: Like
everything in T&T, no proper main-
tenance, run it to the ground.
Nixon Benedict Callender: How
a PM appointed investigation and a
JSC public hearing going on at the
Shirvaan Dookeran: I just want
to go Bago and soak.
Dalip Jairam: If everyone told the
truth, follow guidelines, be honest,
be qualified for the jobs they hold
hmmmmm. Just wishing and typing
Payment in full or
Thousands of students using
the maxi-taxis for school in
south and east Trinidad were
affected yesterday as the Associ-
ation of School Maxi Transport
Concessionaires of T&T stayed
away from duty.
Kenny Supersad: In my days
my parents paid for my transport to
school. This is a waste of tax payers'
Madonna Brandon: The issue of
"Ghost Drivers" has also arisen.
Jonathan Fournillier: I don't
know why they want to insist on
laptop that there is no wifi for it in
schools. That money should be put
towards paying off the debt and
towards the school feeding pro-
Annette Samaroo: It is not a
waste of money as long as the coun-
try can afford it. It's actually a good
idea cause of all the crime and human
trafficking. Having your kids trav-
eling with strangers now isn't safe.
Not everyone would be able to pick
up their kids.
Harry Ramharack: The fall-
outs from a shrinking economy......
nominal school repairs, no payment
for schoolbus drivers, fewer meals
for children, higher book prices,
computer distributions halted.
Wastage and mis-spending con-
tinue....$92,000 on phone calls,
$57,000 on entertainment, $2 million
Nerissa Dqueen: The system
spoiling the people in this country.
Some people are too dependent on
successive Govts to provide for them,
while they shirk their responsibilities
to their families.
Pamela Jagdeo: If these people
are not paid u think they will contin-
ue providing the transportation?
