Graduating in style. Twenty-three students of St Paul's Primary School's graduating class of 2007 had the ride of their lives yesterday. Thanks to the generosity of a parent, the students slid into two luxury stretch limousines with two police outriders to clear a path for them for their journey from the school to Solidarity House, Harmony Hall, where the ceremony was held. To add to their treat, throughout the 20-minute drive, the students enjoyed cold beverages in sparkling crystal glasses. Here, the excited students on their celebrity ride. (AB-cool.gif

I can see no harm in it, they look like they are having a great time, as long as no one is excluded from it, because of finance etc I think its actually nice to celebrate achievements

don't see what the problem is here. praising our kids could actually lead to a gentler, less violent and more civilized society with people being more inclined to settle differences through conflict resolution instead of violence.

I am bit uncertain on how to vote as none of the answers seems appropriate in this instance. If it was that only one or two kids got the privilege of riding in the Limo then I would have a problem. However, I gather it was an occasion for the entire school.. I thought it was a really sweet thing on the school’s part. I see nothing wrong in allowing them to experience few good things at an early age, with in reason. I am sure they recognize it for what it was “a treat”. smile.gif LOL hopefully some will like um enuff to excel and mek some good money so dem cud do it a lil more in de future.
