Sol St. Maarten Donates School Supplies to Primary SchoolsAugust 31, 2015
For the third year, Sol St. Maarten, has again joined forces with the Rotary Club of St. Martin Sunrise to present 375 fully-equipped school bags to the students of the combined Leonard Conner & Charles Leopold Belle Primary School. This year, Sol also honoured the teachers with a token gift.
The handover of backpacks - which included a wide range of classroom supplies - took place at the school on August 18, 2015.
Attending the ceremony were David Antrobus, General Manager of Sol along with Marisca Peterson, Sol’s Retail Sales representative and other members of the Sol St. Maarten team. Also in attendance were the President Marciella Henry and Angela Gordon of the Rotary Club of St. Martin Sunrise.
“We know that the new school year is an exciting time for students and Sol is more than happy once again to help ensure that each and every child is equipped with the tools they need to have an enjoyable and successful academic year.
“Sol remains committed to helping our young people reach their full potential. We wish all the students of the combined Cole Bay schools the very best as they continue to strive for excellence.”
Sol’s donation to the school is part of a back-to-school project being run by the Rotary Club of St. Martin Sunrise. The company chose to sponsor these Cole Bay primary schools as its main office and depot are located in the same neighborhood.
“As good citizens and neighbours, Sol is always proud to champion the education and development of St. Maarten’s youth, and we will continue to support the community of Cay Bay wherever and whenever we can,” added Antrobus.
Both Antrobus and Henry emphasised that Education is Key and that the children should strive to do better at all times so that they can go further in their lives.
Ms. Henry thanked Sol for not hesitating to support these Cole Bay schools.
The children and their teachers were happy to be back at school and very appreciative of Sol and Rotary’s gesture.
