JAMALCO Fetes Basic School Children and Teachers


JAMALCO has, since mid-December, feted children and their teachers in some 70 basic schools in Clarendon and South Manchester, at a cost of just under $3 million.
On December 15, over 200 challenged students from educational institutions in Clarendon were treated and given gifts for the yuletide season, at the refinery’s sports club at Halse Hall in the parish. The students displayed various talents, including dancing, singing and drama performances. They were encouraged by Jamalco officials to always use their skills and talents to propel themselves to achieve their aspirations, as other persons without challenges have done. Deputy Public Relations Officer at the company, Phillip Biggs, said it was pleasing to see the talents on display. “We are quite pleased to see the many talents here today. This is part of a wider out-reach that Jamalco has been doing, where we seek to give back to the communities in which we have our operations,” said Mr. Biggs. Volunteers from the company’s workforce did the catering and serving.
