"You, the children, yours is the great responsibility to educate your parents, teach them to live together in harmony... To your tender and loving hands, the future of the Nation is entrusted. In your innocent hearts, the pride of the Nation is enshrined. On your scholastic development, the salvation of the Nation is dependent... you carry the future of Trinidad and Tobago in your school bags'.
Dr. Eric Williams
