The delivery of education at the Ramble Primary School, in St. Mary, has been significantly enhanced, with the construction of a resource centre at the institution, by the Digicel Foundation.
The Ramble Primary School Resource Centre, which was officially handed over to the school on Friday, March 20, was built and equipped at a cost of approximately $6 million.
Completed in 2007, the centre is being used to conduct the school’s Special Intervention Programme, through which students who are not proficient in reading, are given special assistance and attention, to enable them to acquire the required competence.
In addition to building and equipping the centre, the Digicel Foundation also refurbished the school’s library, as part of its goodwill gesture to the institution.
Addressing the function, Chairman of the Digicel Foundation, Major General Robert Neish, gave an overview of the Foundation’s involvement in the project, and mentioned the organisation’s intention to donate 12 more resource centres to schools, through the Ministry of Education.
Principal of the school, Ervin Rose, thanked the Foundation for donating the resource centre and refurbishing the school library.
He said that the centre would play a significant role in enabling the school to continue to provide quality education for its students.
In an interview with JIS News, Mr. Rose said that in addition to being used for the school’s reading proficiency programme, the centre would also be utilised as a venue for additional school work.
Noting that the special intervention programme involves students from grade two upwards, Mr. Rose said the use of the centre would enable the school to conduct that programme far more efficiently than previously.
