Thursday, December 1st, 2016
Thanks to a donor, who wishes to remain anonymous, 31 students at the San Pedro Roman Catholic School (SPRCS) received new backpacks on Friday, November 25th. Each backpack was filled with goodies such as a headphone, charger, a bike warning light, and some batteries.
Principal of SPRCS, Roxani Kay explained that the donor approached her and asked if he could to donate schoolbags to those students who are in need. Kay was more than happy to receive the donation. “I was delighted and happy for our students, because I knew that they would be grateful and enthusiastic about the donation. We do have students who have financial challenges and many come unprepared for classes. Therefore, when persons in our community or visitors are willing to help out our school children, this type of gesture is always appreciated and valued. It make us feel that indeed we do have people who are interested in investing in our children’s education,” said Kay.
On behalf of all the faculty, student’s parents, Principal Kay gives special thanks to the donor for his kind contribution SPRCS.
