Telecommunications provider LIME will host its first “Back to School Fair” on Monday at the LIME location in Kingstown, starting from 8 a.m.
Children of LIME’s patron will be treated to free haircuts and hairstyles, free back to school supplies, included LIME school bags, free medical checks to include eye, ear, hygiene, nutrition and BMI.
The fair is among activities performed by LIME in their corporate support of education and the development of our youths here in St Vincent and the Grenadines this summer.
On Wednesday, LIME ended its 2015 Internet Summer School on Wednesday at the LIME compound in Arnos Vale.
LIME Country Manager, Wayne Hull addressed the closing ceremony for the event, which is into its 11th year.
“We have in the past extended this opportunity to several communities in the rural parts of St Vincent and the Grenadines. You have our commitment to not only continue this programme next year, but extend our reach again the rural communities,” he said.
Tutor for this year, K. Hamilton, commented on her first time experience of tutoring so many children in this age group.
“It was indeed a challenge, but it was very rewarding, especially when at the end of the week students were quizzed and I realized they were really learning.”
This year eight students were given a special gift from LIME for being the most outstanding students in their class. They were: Zabdiel Searles, Shelton Knights, Precious O’garro, Ricky Patterson, T-Roy Peters, Paul Jr O’garro, Fayth Cambridge and Jonte Smith.
LIME Marketing & Corporate Communication Manager, Nikala Williams, said: “Hearing how ecstatic the kids are about the class makes me want to be a kid again! Thanks again to our partners Unicomer SVG Ltd and Frank B Armstrong/Better Brands for their continued support.”
Williams also mentioned that the video made by the kids will be available for viewing on the LIME Facebook page.
