St George’s Episcopal Anglican Church and School have gratefully received a generous donation of office equipment from a relocating recruitment agency.AP Executive has been running an office in Tortola for the past five years, but as business expands they have closed down their local outfit in preparation for a move into another region of the Caribbean.
Ever mindful of the future workforce in the BVI, AP Executive has donated all its office equipment and furniture to St George’s School in the hope that it will help give the children there an educational boost. Along with general office furniture, supplies and desks, the equipment includes three personal computers, a scanner, a fax machine and a colour laser printer, which AP Executive manager Nick Careless hopes will help the pupils gain much needed computer skills. Nick says: "AP Executive sincerely hopes the pupils at St George’s benefit from this equipment. Technology is a big part of global communications and if children can become computer literate at a young age, it can only be beneficial to their future."
The School was delighted with the kind donation, and Father Ronald Branche, on behalf of the Secondary School, said: "We give thanks with grateful hearts."
It is hoped that learning computer skills will have other benefits to the children, as Nick says: "In addition to the practical aspects, computers can be fun! We wish the staff and pupils at St George’s all the best".
