Students at the Manchester-based New Green Basic School now have a reliable water supply with the installation of a 1,000-gallon water tank on the school grounds earlier this week by the Rotary Club of Mandeville.
The Rotarians also treated the students to a mouth-watering lunch of chicken, fish, rice and peas, followed by cake, sweets and cold drink.
President of the Club, McClooney Blair, told JIS News that the donation was part of an ongoing effort to support early childhood education. “We have installed several water tanks at other schools,” he informed.
Principal of the institution, Nellie Wellington, said that the donation of the water tank would help to alleviate much of the school’s water woes.
“It is a happy moment for us. Water is a problem … and we need to have proper storage, and this will help. The basic school is a community school, and the Rotarians have touched the entire community by what they did today,” she added.
The New Green Basic School is a community of 51 students and four teachers, bolstered by a supportive parenting group.
