The Vauxhall Primary School wishes to thank you the Barbados Defence Force for acknowledging and approving our request for assistance with the annual Flag Raising Ceremony. The invaluable guidance and patience displayed by Master Chief Petty Officer Class 1 David Knight and Sergeant Brathwaite encouraged confidence in the Brownies, Blossoms and Cubscouts. The discipline shown by the uniformed groups at the Flag Raising Ceremony was as a result of the encouragement given.

Special thanks must also be given to cadets who accompanied the groups and played the drums on parade and the preparation of the flag pole by Sergeant Brathwaite.

Harriet Blackman (Mrs.)
Senior Teacher(Ag)
