St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The Irishtown Primary School has been closed since the deadly shooting of the school’s security guard, Dahlia Hanley, on February 14.
The students and staff have been on compassionate leave until February 24. As a result, students have had to return to remote learning.
FLOW gifted the school six HP Chromebooks to provide students with the equipment needed for those who may be without means of participating in remote learning.
“We at Flow sympathise with the staff and students of the Irishtown Primary School on the recent loss of one of your colleagues. We understand the students are currently engaged in remote learning, and some are not equipped with the necessary tools during this learning process. FLOW cares about our youths and the nation on a whole, as you’re the ones that make up our customer base. On behalf of the Board of Directors, management and staff at FLOW, we are presenting you with these Chrome Books knowing that they will aid with the student’s education.” – Sharisma Patrick, Marketing and Communications Executive on behalf of FLOW.
The principal of the Irishtowm Primary school, Avonelle Cary Fraites, expressed gratitude on behalf of the school and the students who will benefit from the laptops.
“On behalf of the Irishtown Primary School, Team Pheonix Family, we do say thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We thank you for your care; we thank you for your help at this time. We definitely appreciate this donation. Thank you very much to FLOW.”
The handing over was held in FLOW’s Conference Room at their main office at Needmust Estate on February 22.
