CIBC FIRSTCARIBBEAN HELPS TO BRING WATER TO ST. MARGARET’S

If the dry season this year leads to water outages the 121 children of St. Margaret’s Primary School should not be as adversely affected as in previous years.

The members of the Corporate Communications Team of CIBC FirstCaribbean recently visited the school and presented the staff and students with a 1000-gallon water tank which will assist them in getting water to the top floor of the school when there is low pressure in the area.

In explaining why the school was chosen, Director of Corporate Communications at the bank, Debra King told the children that they learned of the adverse effects the water outages were having on the school from a past pupil and decided that they wanted to help St. Margaret’s.

Debra King of CIBC FirstCaribbean presented the books to the children along with their teacher Karen Sealy-Cox.

In addition to the presentation of the tank, the bank gave the school a storage cupboard and Mrs. King read a story for the children who responded enthusiastically to the book which she later presented along with other books to the children. A set of fans will also be given to the school to mount in the school hall which often gets very hot sometimes leading to classes being held outdoors.

Debra King gets a group hug from the children of the nursery who were enthused by the reading.

The visit from members of the communications team was part of the Adopt- A-Cause programme and was made on the day the school celebrated Africa Awareness Day when many of the children were dressed in traditional African wear.
