The principals, teachers and some students representing the six schools were invited to the Embassy for the presentation and afternoon tea. The parliamentary representatives of the respective constituencies where the schools are located, Montgomery Daniel and Dr. Jerrol Thompson, were also present.

The Ambassador encouraged the students to drink more water than the sweetened soft drinks for health reasons. In that way, many diseases can be avoided. Daniel and Dr. Thompson, along with several principals and teachers, expressed their appreciation for the gesture made by the Ambassador. Dr. Thompson also explained the importance of healthy diet to the young people.
