Thanks to Kirk Supermarket and
Pharmacy, students attending government schools will benefit from receiving additional
supplies this school year.
The retailer donated 5,600 pencils,
which will be distributed in packs of ten to primary schools throughout the
Cayman Islands. An additional donation of scientific calculators and
protractors will go to math departments at public high schools.
Explaining the importance of
getting involved and bridging financial funding gaps, Kirk Supermarket General
Manager Charles Jury said, “We know that money is limited at the moment and
that some school resources have been cut.
“School is where it all starts for
kids and we want to ensure that they have the tools to be successful, because
when kids do well, we all benefit.”
Mr. Jury further noted that such
donations would become an annual ritual for Kirk Supermarket.
Ministry of Education Deputy Chief
Officer Christen Suckoo said, “We are grateful to receive this generous
donation of supplies and we particularly thank Kirk Supermarket for recognising
the importance of education.
“We hope that you and
other like-minded persons will continue to keep the education of our youth in
the forefront their minds.”
