Michael Payet, Public Relations & Communications Manager at IDC has handed over to English River Secondary School a donation on behalf of the company, comprising furniture and a shelter facility for the school.The donation was received for the school by Head Teacher Marie-Claude Morel in a small ceremony at the school on 21 February.
The different items donated include a semi-permeable shelter to protect against the sun called ‘La Salle Verte’, four sets of benches and tables made by Green Island Construction Company. The items are environment friendly and will benefit the children throughout their school sessions, providing them with better comfort.
“IDC is engaged in a lot of projects to serve the community" said Michael Payet. "This project at the English River secondary school started last year when we donated chairs and tables, and renovated the S block along with electrical works. We hope that the students will use those new items wisely. IDC will continue to provide necessary support for as long as it is able to do so.”
Head teacher Morel thanked IDC for the generous donation, saying "“We want to thank IDC for such kind donation. The ‘La Salle Verte’ will enable the students, teachers and parents and other invitees to assemble to perform social and educational activities. It also creates space for exhibitions on theme days such as World Environment Day, World Food Day and Bio-diversity Day, etc.. The school has now enough benches and students won’t have to sit on the concrete floor during lunch.”
IDC has further projects planned for other schools, including Perseverance and Grand Anse.
