Wilf Talbot, Regional Director for the company’s eastern region recently made the presentation to school Principal Julie Bailey on the school grounds.The donation, which was made possible through the company’s Community Relations Department, is part of outreach initiatives by the JPSCo to assist the education sector and improve the performance of students.
Other initiatives being undertaken by the company in pursuit of that objective include sponsoring sports and debating competitions among schools; partnering with the government to finance the school feeding programme; and facilitating training seminars for science teachers.
Daffodil Bruce, JPSCo Community Relations Officer, told JIS News that the company was happy to be able to assist Fair Prospect Primary, adding that the outreach activities gave the organization an opportunity to give back to the country.
She noted that the organization was targeting education for assistance in recognition of the critical role of the sector in the national development process.
