North­west Limited makes I.T. bag do­na­tions to Corinth Sec­ondary School

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

At a brief cer­e­mony held at the Corinth Sec­ondary School on Tues­day April 26, rep­re­sen­ta­tives of North­west Limited, agents for West­lake Tyres, pre­sented a set of lap­top bags to IT stu­dents. Ac­cord­ing to Lawrence Bain of North­west, as part of the com­pany's cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity it has al­ways placed much em­pha­sis on youth devel­op­ment. “This in­volve­ment in youth projects in­volves a ten­nis tour­na­ment as well as the Chair­man's award given to the best stu­dent of the engi­neer­ing depart­ment at the Sir Arthur Lewis Com­mu­nity Col­lege,” Bain said. “So when West­lake in­formed us of this bag drive and they even­tu­ally sent us these high qual­ity knap­sacks, we were thrilled to have the op­por­tu­nity to once again put this to­wards our youth." In ac­cept­ing the gifts, head of the IT depart­ment of the school, Elisha Payne, ex­pressed his grat­i­tude on be­half of the par­ents, prin­ci­pal and stu­dents. “This will go a long way in pro­tect­ing the lap­tops that are be­ing pro­vided to stu­dents and we are very thank­ful to North­west for this ges­ture,” Payne said.

The stu­dents were later pre­sented with the bags which they im­me­di­ately put into use.
