An American couple holidaying at the newly open and luxurious Sandals LaSource Hotel have surprisingly provided some much needed assistance to the School for Special Education in the Limes, Grand Anse, St. George’s.
The faculty, staff and students not having prior knowledge of the visitors’ desire to come to the assistance of the school were, on Monday, presented with a welcome gift of groceries and school supplies.
“The Principal just got a call saying a client from Sandals would like to visit the school and that was the surprise we got,” said Teacher at the school, Patricia Williams.
The female teacher told the New Today newspaper that while they are very appreciative of the gift which she estimated to be valued at approximately EC$1000.00, they were definitely surprised with the kind gesture.
Williams said the American couple became aware of the school through a Grenadian worker who once engaged in dance classes at the school.
According to her the female American was touched by the information passed on to her since she has a sibling with a form of disability.
Among the items presented to the school were groceries and school supplies which include crayons and pencils.
Williams who is the teacher in charge of the school feeding program underscored that the groceries would go a long way in feeding the children.
The 80 students at the School for Special Education are provided on a daily basis with breakfast and lunch.
