Brown arrived at the Fatima College grounds, Port-of-Spain, at about 9.15 am, ahead of a full day of CHOGM meetings and sessions which he later attended at the Hyatt.
The British Prime Minister was welcomed by children dancing on the green leafy lawn of the grounds to the sound of Faye-Ann Lyons-Alvarez’ Road March hit “Meet Superblue”.
Surrounded by a heavy security presence the British Prime Minister, who faces the polls in his native country next year, chatted with children decked in green, blue and red sports gear. Brown also greeted cricketer Daren Ganga and sprinter Darryl Brown who all helped launch International Inspiration II, a core strand of London’s 2012 Olympic and Paralympic international legacy programme.
The launch included a mini sports festival for primary schoolchildren which has been planned and managed by 40 young people from five secondary schools.
Schools participating included the Mucurapo East Secondary School, El Dorado East Secondary, Toco Secondary, Mayaro Secondary and Speyside High School. Brown, who was expected to deliver a speech, stayed for half-an-hour, before leaving at about 9.46 am.
