Port of Spain, March 23 .- The president of "Friends of Cuba in Trinidad and Tobago" Clyde Callender held a cordial meeting with Guillermo Vázquez Moreno, Cuban ambassador and Alex González García, first secretary of the Embassy, in the which was exchanged ideas and information on several of the activities that the solidarity movement with Cuba organizes for the current year.
The cultural exchange with Cuba and Success Laventille Secondary School has had numerous benefits, not only for the school, but for the students and nation as a whole.
It all began when the school became involved in a pilot music literacy programme supported by Pete the Panstick software where the children leaned to play the tenor pan as well as business and entrepreneur skills.
Success Laventille principal Hamida Baksh developed a relationship with Sanch Electronix Ltd, which provided the software, and she approached managing director Simeon Sandiford who had Cuban business connections
Dance - the education connection
The drums of the Yoruba- speaking Okun peoples of Nigeria struck familiar chords throughout an almost capacity foot tapping Napa rima Bowl auditorium on March 10 when the world famous El Conjunto Folklórico Nacional de Cuba opened the second instalment of its three-show visit.
By then, the well-travelled Cuban dance and music troupe had already left a Port - of- Spain audience in need of more, with a few Naparima Bowl patrons tes tifying to having made a return trip to view the show one last time. It is not known who else would have tailed them to the Shaw Park Complex in Tobago two evenings after.
