Share post:

Businesses in The City have been encouraged to do more for schools and surrounding communities.
This call came from Minister of State in the Ministry of Education Patrick Todd, at the official opening of the Emmerton Play Park which was provided by the National Conservation Commission.  
Todd acknowledged that some businesses had already adopted schools and were providing scholarships to students.
However, he said that more could be done in terms of donating educational materials to schools “so that the young members of The City will grow up to be well educated individuals with high self-esteem and transition in businesses becoming model employees”. (AH)
