Local spring water bottling company, Lifespan Spring Water, returned to Buff Bay where the team undertook to execute refurbishing activities at the Buff Bay High School on Labour Day.

This comes just a few months after the company donated six electronic white boards to the Buff Bay Primary School in West Portland. 

According to Robert Scott, General Manager at Lifespan, the company updated the staff bathrooms which is in keeping with the company’s Sustainable Development Goal number six – Clean water and sanitation for all.

“We did a site visit and this was an area of opportunity for Lifespan to make a difference. This also ties in nicely with our focus on education and a much needed face-lift of the bathroom facility is a part of our initiative aimed at improving education in a friendly environment”.

Chief Executive Officer of Lifespan Nayana Williams said the company’s decision to repaint, replace equipment and toilets as well as tiles and face basins in the male and female bathrooms at the school will do a lot for the morale of teachers.

“We place a lot of emphasis on sanitation as you will all know at Lifespan spring water. And therefore once the request was made, we took the decision that it is a good project to undertake,” Williams explained.

“We have a team of ten workers including managers assisting in today’s Labour Day project. We are doing the painting now and later on we will undertake the other areas. It is a very important project for us because we see that in order for Jamaica to become successful and progressing, then education plays a major role in accomplishing that. So we are in support of education a hundred percent; so we do whatever we can to ensure that our students are educated…whatever role we can play to make it a success, “she concluded.  

Approximately 40 teachers will benefit from the sprucing up of the male and female sanitary convenience at Buff Bay High School.
