CWSA aids Kingstown Gov’t School to rebuild after fire

The Kingstown Government School received a gift of $7,000 from the Central Water and Sewerage Authority (CWSA) last Friday.{{more}}

The cash was given to aid in the rebuilding process after a fire that destroyed a section of the school last August.

Mike Browne, chair of the Board of Directors of CWSA, said he was not in the country when the fire occurred on August 9.

However, after reading about it in the local press, Browne said that he made a personal pledge to raise some funds to assist in the aftermath.

He said that he subsequently learned of the pledge made by the CWSA when he returned, but he committed himself to finding some additional assistance.

Joan Ryan, public relations and marketing manager of CWSA, said being a responsible corporate citizen was one of the many functions of the company.

“We have a series of outreach programmes throughout the country. They include visits to schools and other awareness campaigns. So, the CWSA is about many things and we are especially pleased to be doing this,” Ryan said.

She added that the present students at the institution were also the future generation of CWSA.

“So, we are doing our part to ensure that you receive an education so that you may become productive citizens.”

Principal Maureen Brackin assured the CWSA that the funds would be put to good use.

“Now, I’m very happy, I’m very pleased to say that the CWSA has come to our assistance,” she said. (DD)
