St. George’s Parish Council Donates To School

June 26, 2018

The St. George’s Parish Council recently presented East End Primary School with a donation of $500 to go toward their Primary 5 and Primary 6 school trip this month.

A spokesperson said, “Five teachers and one parent will be accompanying approximately twenty students, three of which are in the schools Functional Skills Programme.

“This is an educational tour to a Lancaster, Pennsylvania to visit an Amish home and farm, and it will also include museums and other places of interest in Washington D.C. The trip will provide the students with the opportunity to experience and solidify the connection between Jamestown and Bermuda and will expose them to cultural exhibits in both states.

“This will also allow the students, who are in the Functional Skills Programme, opportunities to put into practice some of the many skills they will be learning throughout the school year such as reading skills, money management, food preparation and daily living skills.”

Parish Council members attending the presentation were Laurie Shiell-Smith, Keitha Trott and Roslyn O’Brien, Chairperson:

“St. George’s Parish Council is pleased that we were able to contribute this donation and lessen the expenses for the students. We know that this will be an awesome opportunity for the students and we look forward to hearing about their experiences upon their return.

“We were told by Ms. Alicia Zuill, Para-Educator and tour organizer, that this is the first trip overseas for a couple of the students, and we truly hope that this trip will encourage them and the other students to continue to explore all the wonders that the world holds.”
