KPMG gives sup­plies to La Croix Main­got Pri­mary School

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

“Shap­ing brighter to­mor­rows” is KPMG Eastern Caribbean’s ini­tia­tive to ex­tend a help­ing hand to stu­dents of La Croix Main­got Pri­mary School. On Septem­ber 24th, 2015 Mr. Frank My­ers and his team from KPMG Eastern Caribbean at­tended at the school premises to meet the Prin­ci­pal, Ms. Chris­tine Nor­ley, plus staff and pupils, and to hand over uni­forms and shoes for 30 stu­dents.

KPMG Eastern Caribbean Part­ner, Frank My­ers, said: “KPMG has a set of core val­ues which re­quire us to par­tic­i­pate in the com­mu­ni­ties within which we live. It’s not just about do­ing busi­ness but it’s our re­spon­si­bil­ity to con­trib­ute as much as we can to the com­mu­ni­ties and help the com­mu­ni­ties grow. We think that given that ed­u­ca­tion is such an im­por­tant thing in the world this is a very good area for KPMG to get in­volved and it cer­tainly is liv­ing up to one of the core val­ues of the com­pany.”

Mr. My­ers said it had come to the at­ten­tion of KPMG that cer­tain chil­dren in the school were lack­ing in ba­sic es­sen­tial equip­ment and, af­ter a con­ver­sa­tion with the school Prin­ci­pal, the com­pany de­cided to as­sist.

KPMG has pro­vided as­sis­tance to other schools on the is­land but this is the first such ini­tia­tive at the La Croix Main­got Pri­mary School. The Prin­ci­pal, Ms. Chris­tine Nor­ley, is look­ing for­ward to a last­ing re­la­tion­ship with the bene­fac­tor.
