By BBN Staff: While schoolyards across the country are currently empty, education authorities are hard at work preparing for the day schools re-open. Meanwhile, one Belize City school, Unity Presbyterian Primary School, is trying to secure their compound by hosting a fundraiser and they need your support.
The school has suffered from two break-ins in the past few weeks, which is a security concern for the teachers and students alike, upon their eventual return. The school’s fundraiser will be a barbecue sale held on Friday, February 26, to make enough to purchase gates for the school compound.
Samantha Moody, a teacher at Unity, says that six of the school’s classrooms were damaged in the break-ins.
“During the break-ins, they damaged the router wires. We had some speakers and teachers’ supplies, they stole those. They even defaced the furniture,” Moody said.
She went on to say that, even more disheartening, the culprits are suspected to be from within the very community that the school serves.
Apart from a sincere plea to support the fundraiser through buying plates of barbecue, the school is reaching out asking for in-kind donations to get the initiative off the ground. Anyone wanting to make a donation can get in touch with the school’s principal, Dalila Makhwani, at 606-6543.
