Mile Gully High School, in Manchester, has received eight computers from the charity organisation, Food for the Poor.
Making the presentation at the school, on March 6, Manager for the Education and Social Outreach Programme, Food for the Poor, Marcia Hall-Walker, said the organisation decided to contribute to the school’s 10th anniversary with items that would enhance the learning environment at Mile Gully High.
“We believe that computers are an effective tool to engage children, and it will help to provide an environment that is conducive to learning. We firmly believe that the learning and development of the students will be facilitated by them,” she said.
Expressing gratitude for the computers, President of the Mile Gully High Student Council, Careba Salmon, told JIS News that the gift would be helpful to the students, as more of her peers would have easier access to them at the school.
“These computers will make a change, and improve the education status at Mile Gully for many students. It is very important that schools be equipped with computers, because it makes learning smooth for both teachers and students,” she said.
The computers were handed over to the Principal of the institution, Ulit Brackett.
Mile Gully High School has a population of 677 students, and 32 teachers.
