Hanover Charities invest J$2million at Church Hill Primary School

Santoy, Hanover (McN) – With the surge in crime for the Parish of Hanover, it is a breath of fresh air to report an organization that has its heart set on making the lives of children, school officials and teachers pleasant. Mckoy’s News reports on Hanover Charities with much accolade.

Hanover school gets a J$ 2. million Computer Lab

Hanover Charities has invested nearly J$2 million into building a new computer lab for the Church Hill Primary School in Santoy, Hanover. The project which started in September took a total of ten weeks to reach completion.

Chairman of Hanover Charities, Katrin Casserly expressed her delight in giving back to the parish of Hanover.

“A part of the reason Hanover Charities was able to raise so much funds to aid in the installation of computer labs was largely due to the contribution of the Falkenberg family”, contended Casserly. “

Mr. and Mrs. Falkenberg celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary and instead of asking for gifts, friends and family donated towards the charity”, Casserly said. The Falkenberg family who are shareholders at Round Hill Hotel specifically asked that the funds go towards building computer labs across Hanover.

Casserly revealed that after donating twelve (12) computers to the school this past summer, she learnt that they were without an appropriate location.

“After learning that the teachers would have to give up their meeting and break room, Hanover Charities decided to build a new computer room instead”, said Casserly.

Hanover Charities is a God – Sent, says Principal

Principal of Church Hill Primary, Mr. Delano Murdock applauded the efforts of the charity noting that “ Hanover Charities is a God- sent not only to Church Hill Primary but schools and organizations in and around Hanover. They have contributed significantly to Hanover and we at Church Hill are thankful for their love and support”.

Overseeing the project was Mr. Marvell Sewell, a past student of Church Hill Primary and now a board member.  “I strongly believe in education and I believe that Hanover Charities is doing a great job at uplifting the school and the community on a whole. I am happy to be a part of this project and I feel proud of where Church Hill is coming from to where it is now as we’ve never had a computer room in the past”.

Hanover Charities and Church Hill Primary will officially host a ribbon cutting ceremony scheduled for January 13 at 11:00 am.
