(PRESS RELEASE VIA SNO) – Parents, Teachers and students of the Montessori Centre at Rodney Bay can breathe easier with the installation of a number of road safety features in close proximity to the school.
Located just off a heavily trafficked highway, the Montessori Centre provides early childhood and primary level education services.
The project was completed on Saturday September 1st, in time for the opening of the new school year. The full scope of works included installation of one concave mirror, two STOP signs, two ‘school’ signs, one ‘speed bump’ sign, as well as the painting of three speed bumps and a zebra crossing.
The project was the first in a series of CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank Adopt-A-Cause initiatives for 2018. Undertaking the work was a team of bank staff under the guidance of the Ministry of Infrastructure, Ports, Energy and Labour.
Each year the CIBC FirstCaribbean’s Adopt-A-Cause Programme focuses on improving a facet of our local community through the activities chosen by the employees of the bank. Over the past few years the programme has focused on schools, enhancing their environments to facilitate more comfortable learning.
“The Adopt- a- Cause Programme is a very important initiative for the bank as it allows us to interact with our communities one-on-one. We look forward to this campaign every year, and it is a wonderful experience for our staff who participate in making a difference in various communities” said the bank’s Country Manager, Ladesa James-Williams.
The Ave Maria Maria School is also earmarked for another Adopt-A-Cause project, which is also scheduled for this month.
To date approximately ten schools have received physical enhancements and library support under the Adopt-A-Cause programme and includes the Augier Combined School, Babanneau Secondary School, Bocage Combined School, Fond St. Jacques Primary School, Grande Riviere Infant and Primary Schools, La Croix Maingot Combined School, Salvation Army Preschool and Day Care, Soufriere Infant School and Vide Boutielle Primary School.
