Friday, November 27, 2009 – The cast and crew of the Reality TV Show the Bachelor, have donated over fifteen thousand dollars in equipment and educational supplies to the Soufriere Comprehensive Secondary School.

The educational tools which were handed over to the school on Tuesday, includes a new laptop, printer and photocopying machine.

Principal of the Soufriere Comprehensive Secondary School, Dominique Prospere says, the supplies will be put into good use.

He says the educational supplies will be of tremendous benefit to the students—most of whom come from underprivileged families.

“Getting certain services like photocopying and getting research material from the internet, can be somewhat challenging at time. Now that we have those services readily available to our students, they will be more interested in going on the internet and getting research done, because they know that they can now come in here and get it done.”

The cast and crew of the Bachelor which airs on ABC. have been in Saint Lucia particularly in the Soufriere area for the past two weeks, shooting episodes for the reality TV show .

Host Chris Harrison says his crew decided to make the donation to the school because they wanted to give something back to the society which has accommodated them like family.

“I have had the opportunity to travel around the world with this show but the people who I have met here, is what makes Saint Lucia special and this is one of the main reasons we wanted to leave our mark. We do go many places and although when we are in a country, we infuse a lot into the local economy our goal is to leave something behind that means something to the people. What we are doing here, is a little part of that, because the children need computers and school supplies so if we can leave a small token of appreciation for Saint Lucia, I think we have done that with these gifts.”

The cast and crew of the Bachelor also spoke to the students on the importance of staying in school and getting a good education.

They also discussed various career opportunities and what it takes to become successful.
