U.S. Coast Guard Demonstration at Queen's College

On Wednesday, June 18, the entire primary school student body, faculty and staff at Queen’s College Primary School received a special treat when representatives from the United States Coast Guard, United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Royal Bahamas Police Force’s Drug Enforcement Unit (DEU) made a special visit to the school’s campus located on Village Road. It was not a typical visit, as the students lined the perimeter of the school’s playing field eagerly anticipating the arrival of the Coast Guard crew. The excited students began to cheer when they heard the sounds of the U.S. Coast Guard helicopter hovering overhead. As the helo made its descent, the Coast Guard helicopter crew delighted the students by circling the school a few times before making its landing onto the school’s compound.

After disembarking from the helicopter, the four member U.S. Coast Guard team, led by Lcdr. Richie Walsh received a warm welcome from Ms. Andrea Gibson, Principal at Queen’s College along with Ms. Sylvia Beneby, head of the primary school department and sixth graders Kyla Bethel, Jodie Ritchie and Joseph Lynch. U.S. Embassy officials, Lcdr. Tom Gill, U.S. Coast Guard Liaison Officer and Ms. Neda Brown, Public Affairs Officer also participated in the two-hour helicopter demonstration.

A special assembly was held in the school’s auditorium that gave the American and Bahamian law enforcement officers an opportunity to participate in a question and answer period with the students. They used the interactive session to highlight the efforts of Operation Bahamas Turks and Caicos (OPBAT) in areas of search and rescue missions, illegal migrant interdiction and combating drug trafficking in Bahamian waters.

During the event, the guests were presented with Queen’s College Comets caps, to commemorate their visit at the school. Following the Q and A, the students accompanied the OPBAT officers onto the field for a chance to get a close-up view of the helicopter and greet the law enforcement team.

BAISS Soccer Champions

Thanks for all those who came out and those who were there in mind and spirit at the R. Davis Soccer Complex last week to witness the finals of the BAISS High School Soccer Competition. All four teams were successful in making it to the playoffs this year but only three made it to the finals.

On Wednesday, April 9th the Junior Girls came second when the went down to a stronger St. Andrews team to lose 2-0 but it was yesterday that the Junior Boys and Senior Girls team synergized to win the Championship in fine style. Both matches went down to a 1-1 dead lock in regulation time but it was the Comets who were proactive and put first things first, tucking away the goals at the penalty shoot out to be crowned this year's BAISS Soccer Champions.

A big thank you to all the soccer moms and soccer dads who came out to most of the matches to support the teams. A sincere thank you to the committed coaching staff of Mr. Ferraz, Mr. Markham and yours truly who work tirelessly with the boys and girls to achieve there dreams. It was a win win situation ......Go Comets!
