THURSDAY, MAY 03, 2018: The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) of the Esperanza Presbyterian Primary School has set the standard for parent involvement when they applied for grant funding to enhance outdoor play for the students. The PTA volunteers have been working arduously to work with the School’s Administration, to guarantee that all aspects of student life are covered.
Acting School Principal Ms. Roweena Maladroit, expressed her gratitude stating that “the programme was a fantastic one.” Ms. Maladroit congratulated the PTA for “taking the initiative, leading and executing such a wonderful project that will benefit all the students.”
The grant was used to develop a small garden park for the lower school – children ages 5-9 years. The space is equipped with swings, slides and a see-saw. The PTA has plans to transform the space even further by including bird feeders and flowers. The EPIC grant will also cover the cost of portable basketball and football posts.
As this project was in keeping with the Digicel Foundation’s Extraordinary Projects Impacting Communities (EPIC) vision to enhance community spaces across the nation, funding was granted to the PTA to implement the initiative.
