On Tuesday 15 th November, Asha Ramlal and Chrishel Williams of Upper 6

accompanied by Ms. Sahadeo attended a ceremony for the presentation of

credentials at President’s House. The Office of the President extended an invitation

to Naparima Girls’ High School as well as Presentation College to witness a

meeting between his Excellency Anthony Thomas Aquinas Carmona and the

newly appointed Ukranian Ambassador, Valeriy Chaly, to Trinidad and Tobago. At the function

both officials engaged in a discussion on various topics such as: the use of

renewable energy in the Ukraine and the way forward for smaller economies like

ours, with alternative energy sources such as solar, wind and hydro power. The

students were allowed to ask the Ambassador questions and it was an enjoyable

experience to witness the ‘ pomp and ceremony’ as he departed the President’s

House with the official soldiers on horseback and trumpet sounds.After the official

ceremony was over, the President of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago

graciously interacted with students and discussed their future plans and even

shared some of his boy-hood stories from when he was a student at Presentation


Certainly, it was a memorable visit and one which exposed the students to a high

level of diplomatic relations and will give them a clearer understanding of

international relations.
