Courts donates to special needs schools
CORPORATE BARBADOS has to recognise it is part of a wider community and therefore has a social responsibility to share its financial gains in areas of need within that community.
This is why managing director of Courts Barbados Limited Trisha Tannis says her company has reached out to special needs children at the Sunshine Early Stimulation Centre and the John Payne School for Exceptional Children at Perry gap, Roebuck Street.
Tannis presented four iPads and five laptops to the Centre’s principal Jenna Parris earlier today, to outfit the special lab named The Discovery Portal.
Principal Parris said the facility would offer the special needs students the opportunity to participate in interactive learning activities and programmes specific to their individual needs.
With special needs ranging from physical challenges such as Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome and developmental delays, the children now have the equipment to enable them to learn computer skills. They can also use the tools in the lab to learn and explore, and use the technology in general to communicate.
The two schools together have a roll of 66 and Parris thanked Courts for its generosity. (GC)
