Republic Bank Donations Making Big Difference At City School

The St. Ambrose Primary School will be starting a new school year with much needed new equipment and appliances thanks to Republic Bank.

From March, the Bank has provided the school with several items, including a refrigerator, a chest freezer, an HP colour printer plus ink, an EPSON projector and two monitors. With a new term set to begin for students on September 19th, normal classes will hopefully continue on the compound uninterrupted, allowing for even greater use of all the donated items.

Principal Jean Trotman explained that with the Bank’s financial support, management selected items which would enhance teaching and learning processes and promote keener health awareness among students and staff.

“As we anticipate the new academic year, we plan to use the equipment maximally to secure the gains projected for our school,” she explained. She added, “We have already begun to utilise the equipment, with good success. The refrigerator and freezer have provided an opportunity for the school to encourage water drinking among staff and students. We hosted two health and wellness 'Get Moving' Days with great ease, because we were able to keep participants well hydrated. Our sincere gratitude is expressed to the Bank for its Power to Make a Difference (PMAD) programme which seeks to enhance the lives and work of a variety of organisations. More specifically, we offer earnest appreciation for the selection of our school as a recipient of their generosity.”

Manager, Marketing and Corporate Communications, Mischa Knight said the Bank is happy to continue its investment in the city school and watch its efforts bear fruit.

“Our relationship with the St. Ambrose School has set the standard for how we as a Bank want to work with our social partners, particularly in education. Principal Trotman, is a true champion for her young charges and staff and this has allowed us to be very responsive to the needs of the school and has inspired our volunteer teams at the Bank to come out in support of various projects to refurbish classrooms and other spaces around the compound. With school resuming soon, we trust that the volunteer work that we have done as well as the appliances and equipment we have provided will make the transition back to in-person classes this term a little easier for staff and students alike.”
