Mrs. Dore expressed gratitude on behalf of the department, and the principal and staff of the Cecele Browne Integrated School for the generous gesture.
“Your donation of Kindle tablets is a very timely gesture as we strive to ensure that our students continue to be immersed in engaging learning activities. We embrace the reality that technology has become an integral part of the learning process.

Mrs. Violet Clarke, Head Teacher of the school also extended thanks to RG Solomon & Sons Ltd. on behalf of the staff and students.
