I was very saddened this morning by the news of the passing of our Prime Minister, The Hon. David Thompson.
We at St. Gabriel’s School were privileged to have had him as the guest speaker at our Valedictory Service in June 2009 when we bade farewell to the students moving on to their respective secondary schools.
In his address he informed us that he was proud of the fact that he was a past St. Gabriel’s student. We were particularly impressed at the ease with which he related to and communicated with all present, especially the students. One felt the genuine interest of a warm, caring gentle person.
On behalf of the entire St. Gabriel’s family of students, parents and staff, I would like to offer deepest and most heart-felt condolences to his wife, daughters, parents, siblings and other members of the Thompson family.
