The members of the class of 2000 of the Soufriere Comprehensive Secondary School recently got together for their 15 year reunion. Little did they know that this gathering would precipitate a culture of altruism directed at their alma mater. On Monday 12th October, 2015 the group brought much-needed relief to the IT department of the school by donating 20 computer mice.
This donation has made a great impact on instruction in that department as it negates the need for students to travel to the Community Access Center for EDPM classes for the upper school CXC programme. Overall, this helps to maximize instructional time as travelling time to the Community Access Center is eliminated.
This group, which declared its adoption of the school just over four weeks ago, also sponsored the complete facelift of the school’s outer wall which bears the name of the school. It sponsored the power-washing, and the cost of paint and labour for painting. The group continues to work closely with the school’s administration to target important areas of development which, in the long run, will benefit the students.
The principal, staff and students of the school are deeply touched by the immense generosity shown by this group of past students.
With partnerships such as these, the school administration and staff are of the firm belief that the school will become one of the most effective educational institutions on island.
