MOE Donates Devices to Three Homes


The Ministry of Education through the Adopt-a-School program continues to support our students without devices as they make the transition to online learning. The Cyril Ross Nursery, St Jude’s Home for Girls and Hope Centre are the latest institutions to receive devices from the Honourable Nyan Gadsby-Dolly, Minister of Education and the Honourable Lisa Morris -Julian, Minister in the Ministry of Education through the kind donation of corporate sponsors.


The symbolic handing over ceremony, which was also attended by Permanent Secretary, Lenor Baptiste-Simmons was held at Ministry of Education, Education Towers, St Vincent Street, Port of Spain on Friday 25th September, 2020. Receiving on behalf of their institutions were, Ms. Savita Seebaran, Manager of Hope Centre Home, Ms. Sandra Stapelton, Manager of the Cyril Ross Nursery and Ms. Amelia Baptise, Senior Home Supervisor of the St. Jude’s Home for Girls.


This handing over ceremony follows a similar event earlier this month, where the Ministry of Education handed over seventy (70 laptops) for the use of ECCE teachers and ninety-eight (98) laptops to public Special Schools for the use of children with special educational needs.
