An organisation known by most for its dedication to health and wellness through fitness has taken another step forward, this time in the area of philanthropy.
On Saturday 05th April, the SSU Fitness Club – Point Saline visited the Blessed Sacrament Catholic School better known as Grand Anse R.C. School and provided some much needed assistance to the students and staff.
The school had for some time now, been experiencing difficulty in keeping the students’ safe while at play. A lack of fencing made the grounds easily accessible to vehicular traffic and a constant vigil was needed by all while the children were on the premises.
Upon learning of this possible life threatening situation, the Club made contact with the Principal and a viable solution was reached.
The team, which included members of the SSU Fitness Club and Officers of the Royal Grenada Police Force SSU Unit, were able to erect a wooden pole-and-chain-linked barrier across the entryway to the school yard. This in essence, serves to prevent vehicles from crossing onto the grounds during school hours.
The residents of the surrounding areas were taken into consideration during the planning process and a vehicular entrance was left open on the edge of the property for their use.
The Club also took the opportunity to do a preliminary assessment on some of the other areas of the property which needed some attention.
The work carried out by the Club now brings the school one step closer to living up to the ideals of its Mission Statement which promises “to provide a conducive learning environment in collaboration with all stakeholders, which can foster the holistic development of students so as to prepare them fully for all future endeavours”.
This is not the SSU Fitness Club’s first community service project, and the decision has been taken to do more to enrich the lives of our nation’s people.
To this end, opportunities are being reviewed within other communities on the island and the expectation is that more persons would be able to benefit from the humanitarian efforts of the Club.
