Exchange All Age School were recent recipients of a public address (PA) system from Sandals Royal Planation for use in their daily scholastic activities, and to better improve overall operations at the school.
Ricardo Moncrieff, principal of the school expressed gratitude on behalf of the staff and students and lauded the resort for its continuous involvement in the school’s programs.
“We are so overjoyed. The staff at Sandals Royal Plantation led by General Manager, Arnold Nugent, has provided so much support for our school. Prior to our Christmas treat for the children they requested a wish list from us. Heading the list was a PA system, which they delivered on and we are extremely thankful,” said Moncrieff.
“I know the teachers are really appreciative of this, and I can assure the resort that we will take very good care of this gift,” he added.
In explaining the decision behind supporting the school with the new audio equipment, General Manager, Arnold Nugent said, “we decided on the PA system as an ideal gift as it would benefit the entire school.”
Additionally, “PA Systems are widely used at institutions of learning for making general announcements, hosting events and other important ‘edutainment’ initiatives and we are indeed happy to have made a wonderful choice to fulfill a need,” Nugent shared.
With a student population of over 400, Exchange All Age School has benefited from numerous donations through Sandals and the Sandals Foundation.
To date the company has outfitted the school’s computer lab, provided scholarships for students in need, hosted health-based initiatives, as well as back-to-school and Christmas treats. Students have also benefitted from the Great Shape Inc. Dental outreach programme, that provides essential dental treatment, including exams, sealants, cleanings, filling, and oral hygiene sessions. The children also actively participate in the ’Care for Kids’ Junior Golf Programme at the nearby Upton Estate Golf & Country Club.
