            The Governor-General said Jamaica was fortunate to have ambassadors who always did well for the country.  He observed that once people were in love with their country they would always do their best as they had the right values and perspectives.

            Sir Patrick told the Team to enjoy the country while they were there, learn a little about the foods and culture, always be polite, and appreciate what was offered to them.  He added that the experience would be life changing and it would make them persons who are more global.
