The Edgar T. Morris Primary School, located in Tabernacle, St Kitts received a well needed and well-deserved quote of paint, thanks to the telecommunications company.
The school is the learning home for 56 enrolled students in the close-knit community of Carty’s Pasture, where Head Teacher Kathuel Browne reached out to the company for assistance. With the blessing of a sunny Saturday morning on 9th February 2013, the company’s staff, the school’s teachers and students, went with sleeves rolled up, ready to work with gallons of donated paint and several paint brushes and paint roller. Hours later, the exterior walls of this rural primary school were transformed into hues of blues to mimic the colour of the school uniform.
Expressions of surprise and gratitude were echoed by passers-by and students who noticed the extraordinary change in the appearance of the school’s building. The schools’ motto took on a practical role in this voluntary effort – “There is no success without hard work.” The Telecommunications Company thanked TDC Home & Building Depot for their generous partnership on this project.
The company promised to continue to give back to various communities both in St. Kitts and Nevis. The next project will see the rehabilitation of the garden at the Cotton-Thomas Comprehensive School in St Johnson’s Village. The Taiwanese Technical Mission will be providing all fruits trees and vegetables for planting. The school’s teachers and students who will be responsible for the general maintenance of the school garden is also set to benefit from the technical advice of nurturing these seedlings.
