On Tuesday June 21, 2022 Commander Defence Force, Commodore Raymond King met with Mr. Andy and Mrs. Vicki Knowles who initiated the Let’s Swim Bahamas programme to discuss matters of mutual interests. Mr. and Mrs. Knowles as well as Commodore King are fully aware that there are many children in the Bahamas especially on the island of New Providence who are unable to swim and should have this much needed skill at an early age. On average about 236,000 drownings occur worldwide, to mitigate this major concern Mr. and Mrs Knowles have implemented this programme in ten schools across New Providence.This much needed programme is supported by the Ministry of Education and has been effective during the school semesters for approximately 14 years and counting. The Royal Bahamas Defence Force will be collaborating with the Let’s Swim Bahamas Programme to assist students from the Adelaide and Gambier Primary School.Also in attendence was Deputy Commander Defence Force, Captain Shonedel Pinder and Executive Staff Officer, Captain Henry Daxon and Force Chief Petty Officer Thomas Williams. To conclude their informative meeting, there was an exchange of gifts and pleasentries between Commodore King and Mr. and Mrs. Knowles marking an everlasting relationship between both organizations.The Royal Bahamas Defence Force remains committed to nation-building for the younger generation while Guarding Our Heritage.
