Insurance company adopts a school

| 20/10/2011

(CNS): A local insurance company is heralding in a new kind of relationship between the private and public sector with its move to adopt George Town Primary School. The year-long commitment by Sagicor life includes a $15,000 donation to the school and will also see employees of the insurance firm spending time with the students and engaging in activities within the school. Michael Fraser, the firm’s Cayman president & CEO said the initiative is timely and also demonstrated the company’s commitment to the country.

The more than 300 students of the George Town Primary School will benefit from the twelve month project before Sagicor selects another school to adopt next year in consultation with the ministry. 

Premeir McKeeva Bush offered his support at the launch day this week. “I find the Adopt-a-School program especially appealing because Sagicor is not only giving financial assistance to the school for the purchase of computers and sporting equipment, but it is also getting its employees involved in mentoring the students and volunteering to participate in school activities,” he said. “There is so much to be gained when students have the opportunity to interact with productive and caring adults in their community.”
