Primary schools across the country have continued to perform acts of goodwill in and around their communities as a requirement for their School Based Assessments (SBAs) for Social Studies.
Earlier this week, the Grade 6 class of the Nelvie N. Gore Primary School, located in Willikies, presented care packages to the six workers employed at the Industrial Workshop for the Blind.
The presentation was inspired by field trip to the workshop, located on lower All Saints Road, where the students were able to interact with the workers and learn how they go about their daily duties.
Immediately after the visit, the students organized a barbecue to raise funds to assist the visually challenged workers. Teachers from the school said they also purchased the baskets for the donations from the workshop.
The packages, which were presented to the workers on April 29th, contained toiletries, non-perishables and other items requested by the recipients.
The workshop’s executive director, Jacqueline Tweed Harris, expressed gratitude for the gesture.
