NASSAU, The Bahamas -- Students at the Central Eleuthera High School learned about gender-based violence, on November 6, 2018, when Spouse of the Prime Minister Mrs. Patricia Minnis visited the Palmetto-Point school.  Students who were members of the Bahamas Maritime Cadet Corps formed a receiving line for her when she arrived, and band members played a fanfare in her honour.  Principal Marie Galanis and faculty members joined with the students in welcoming her, and District Superintendent for North and Central Eleuthera Myrtle McPhee and representatives from New Providence accompanied Mrs. Minnis.  Among topics she addressed with the students were physical violence, inappropriate touching and bullying.  She appealed to the male students to be especially courteous in their interaction with female students, and not resort to any form of hitting or name-calling.  She also prayed with students and teachers, and took time out to talk with a number of youngsters, even learning a few dance moves.  (BIS Photos / Eric Rose)
