The fact that we can have an impact on the lives of youth and children in communities we have a strong presence is always heartening to us”, Communications Manager, Vidya Sanichara noted.The Principal also stated that the donation will go a far way for some of the students that come from challenging circumstances, as this will help the school meet the needs of those students.“We would like to thank Digicel for thinking of us, I know it will be good for the children and I am certain that this will make them smile and help them in a large way. We are very grateful”, he added.The backpacks will be distributed throughout the thirteen classes from nursery to secondary to those students that are in need.last_img read more
