Sports analysts’ advocate that sports is best taught, and the principles best inculcated, when children are at an impressionable age, more so when they are at school. It was with this rationale in mind that businessman, Ramesh Persaud, facilitated the donation of a table tennis table to the Queen’s College Secondary School to aid in the development of those students interested in honing their skills in the sport.
Kaieteur Sport was present yesterday morning when Mr. Persaud handed over the gift to Sports Officer of the institution, Johnny ‘Overseas’ Barnwell in the school’s auditorium. He explained that the gift was purchased by his friend and former member of the school, Mohammed Zabar, who now resides in the United States of America. Mr. Persaud further said that his son, Navendra Persaud, is an excellent racquet wielder whose local exploits are well documented. He said that his son had recently won a silver medal at the 8th Caribbean Regional Pre Cadet Championships staged at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall last August and this feat had inspired Mr. Zabar to make the donation. Mr. Persaud said that he is also grateful to the proprietor of DeSinco, Frank DeAbru, a member of the Board of Directors of the school, who has facilitated the shipping of the tennis table to Guyana.
Mr. Barnwell received the gift on behalf of the school in the presence of several of the children and a few teachers. He thanked his benefactor while assuring him that the children will benefit tremendously.
Queen’s College has produced quite a few good table tennis players and only yesterday morning another table tennis player from that institution, Shemar Britton, departed Guyana for Peru to participate in the South American Youth championships.
