The Students of the Newtown Primary school are better equipped for school after receiving donation of school supplies from the Dominica Arts and Crafts Producers Association (DACPA) earlier this week.
This substantial donation included over fifteen packed bags of supplies which is said to be enough for each student.
At the handing over ceremony, Head of DACPA, Vanessa Lissa Winston said that she saw the opportunity to give irrespective of the quantity.
“We have received a few care bags and back-packs that we have packaged and presented to the Newtown Primary School. It may not be much but I know with the principal’s assistance she will use it to benefit all or those more in need,” she stated.
Addressing the small ceremony, Winston encouraged the public to pay attention to the students for not only academics but for their creativity and interest in nature.
Meanwhile Principal of the Newtown Primary, Anita Williams expressed her gratitude to the DACPA as the school seeks to develop a holistic learning environment.
“The arts and craft materials will go towards enhancing and teaching at the school to make our students enjoy learning and what they do”, stated Williams.
