The Pioneer Prep School at Checkhall will soon have an upgraded computer room, as it will now be able to buy new computers, thanks to a $50,500 donation from ScotiaBank. General Manager of the ScotiaBank, Paula Harts presented the cheque to the school’s principal, Esther Robinson on Friday November 11, 2016.
Harts said “At Scotiabank we believe that children are the future and so we take pride in partnering with anyone when it comes to children. We invest in children because they are the leaders of tomorrow, and so anytime someone reaches out to us to help support the children of any country, we will participate”.
Harts encouraged the students to use the computers for educational purposes, saying, “we won’t be on Facebook and such things while we’re supposed to be using the computer, we’re gonna use it for school, and for proper education”. She added, “So we’re going to watch this lab unfold, we will be back when it is completed, and we’re going to do the ribbon cutting and ceremony. We pray that you will use it for God’s glory, because in everything, we have to give God thanks, because he deserves all glory and praise”.
Principal of the Pioneer Preparatory School, Esther Robinson stated that the donation will greatly enhance the school’s computer science program. Robinson said “Ms Hart, I have to say thank you …the program here is already a very good one; the children are already learning almost all of Microsoft Suite, so they will leave here with Excel and a little bit of Access … Thank you so very much”.
The students of Pioneer Preparatory School also expressed their deep gratitude to ScotiaBank for the generous donation.
