Nine schools within the Territory were gifted with computers, printers, smart televisions and other electronic items from ATU General Trust (BVI).
Chief Education Officer, Mrs. Connie George said, “Althea Scatliffe Primary School, Century House Montessori School, First Impressions Primary School, Joyce Samuel Primary School, Little Amaris Day Care, Pelican Gate School, St. George’s Primary School, and Seventh-day Adventist Primary School were the recipients of technology suites from ATU.”
In addition, schools received chocolates imported from Switzerland and other special treats for the holiday season.
Mrs. Shondrea Turnbull of ATU said that after the passage of Hurricanes Irma and Maria last year, the company placed priority on the recovery of all staff and their respective families; and as an extension of the company’s investment in staff, this year, the ‘ATU Days of Giving’ will focus on donating to schools which staff members’ children are attending.
“This holiday season, from the 23rd of November through the 31st of December, ATU General Trust (BVI) Limited will engage in “ATU Days of Giving”, a charitable giving initiative committed to supporting the area of education in the BVI,” said Mrs. Turnbull.
The Ministry of Education and Culture thanks the management and staff of ATU for their contributions and generosity in adhering to their corporate social responsibilities. The ministry remains committed to providing high quality education as well as access to and participation in sports, recreation and culture, in order to enrich the lives of all residents of these Virgin Islands.
