CIBC REACHES OUT TO GRAZETTES PRIMARY SCHOOL

Five children who are moving from Grazettes Primary School to secondary school, this September, will do so with a helping hand from staff of a local bank while those remaining at the school will benefit from having improved learning facilities.

The helping hand was extended by the school’s neighbours at CIBC FirstCaribbean and in particular staff of the Risk Management Business Support Team of the bank.

CIBC FirstCaribbean’s Shernelle Grant explained that the team replaced display boards and changed chalkboards, built and erected a bench as well as painted a classroom as a means of readying the school to greet a new school year.

She added that they were also sponsoring five children by paying their school fees and purchasing uniforms as a means of assisting them as they transition to secondary school.

“The gesture provides an opportunity for us, the Risk Management Business Support team to fulfill our desire to give back to our community while affording a few children an opportunity to transition to secondary school equipped with the necessary tools to aid in their success,” she said.
