Thursday, January 15, 2009 – Parliamentary representative for Dennery South, Honourable Edmund Estephane has taken initiative within his constituency to compliment the efforts of the Ministry of Education.

The MP's donation of ten computers was divided evenly between the Dennery Infant and Primary Schools.

The computers were made available to the Mr. Estephane by the American International Medicine University (AIMU) which has a campus on island.

Minister Estephane used the opportunity to emphasize the importance of education on the young minds.
“I want to impress on you today that you to take your education seriously, because this is what is going to make you a different person; it will make you stand out, it will provide you with economic stability by putting food on your table and clothes to wear. And when you get older, this is what will enable you to feed your children and do so properly. So I want you to take your education seriously.”

Principal of the Dennery Infant School, Gabriella St. Paul, welcomed the gesture and expressed profound gratitude on behalf of the students and staff.

“The computers today will help us in a very special way. It will provide our students here with knowledge and skills, also competency that will make them marketable when they grow older. Today we know that globalisation is taking over, that means our children have to compete with students worldwide,” said St. Paul.

St. Paul said the school is now better equipped to enhance participation in a Ministry of Education initiative—Destination Mathematics—designed to incorporate information technology and mathematical concepts.

A representative of the Parents/Teachers' Association was on hand to relay thanks on behalf of the community.
