Jamaica Prime Minister Visits Five-Year-Old Letter Writer

Jamaica Prime Minister Andrew Holness on Tuesday took time out to visit a five-year-old child, Makai McLawrence, who sent him a letter during the festive season with a request for him to visit his school, Small Treasures Child Care in St. Andrew.

The Prime Minister posted a copy of the letter on his social media pages, which said: “Dear Most Honourable Andrew Holness. My name is Makai McLawrence. I am five years old. I attend Small Treasures Child Care, which is close to Jamaica House. I am inviting you to visit my school, to meet with the K3 students. We learnt about Jamaica’s motto, anthem, national heroes and you, our Prime Minister. We need a photograph of you”.

The PM said it is important for our children to understand the structure of the Government, to understand civic affairs, and to be able to express themselves.
