By BBN Staff: As schools prepare for reopening in August, many are going about the job of sanitizing and making other preparations such as painting to receive their students with a fresh look for the new year. Today the community organization Children First and Last Belize (CFAL) and Universal Hardware teamed up to assist Calvary Temple Primary school with 15 gallons of paint to assist the school with its preparation.
Pat Lamb, secretary of CFAL, said that the organization has been working with Calvary Temple for a number of years, offering scholarships and giving other support to the school. Lamb said that CFAL continues to look for ways to support the school and approached Universal Hardware for the paint donation as one such initiative.
The school’s principal, Georgett Bartley-Wright, told our newsroom that the donation will go a long way in getting the school ready to receive its expected student population of around 140-150 children.
“There are so many things that need to get done to be ready for the new school year and this will alleviate some of those costs,” Bartley-Wright said.
She added that given the school’s relatively small population, it is unlikely that the teachers will have much difficulty placing students the required three feet apart as per the new social distancing protocols by the Ministries of Education and Health.
