Jamaica News, St James: Representatives from two arms of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, who have been adding a bright sparkle to Anchovy Primary School in St James over the past months, were honored on Thursday, December 13, by the principal, students and members of the administrative staff following another day of work at the institution.
The officers who are attached to the Jamaica Constabulary Force, Area One Division, were each presented with a gift as a token for their hard work and combined effort, for their cleaning up campaign and painting of sections of the grade three school block, and other sections of the school.
The projects were carried out by officers attached to the St James Community Safety and Security Branch and the St James Federation Constable Branch Board.
Principal of Anchovy Primary, Mrs. Cheryl Grant-Mitchell, told our news team that the school administration is very thankful for the gesture.
According to the principal, it is a very exciting moment for the entire school community, especially teachers and students from the Grade three.
Detective Woman/Constable Nadine James, who also serves as Chairman of the St. James Federation Constable Branch, told our news that the police are very pleased with a job well done at the institution.
” We all managed to carry out the completion of the painting of grills, doors and other sections of the school, also the cleaning up of the compound,” Detective Constable James stated.
” This outreach exercise which is under the theme (Service Above Self) is the first of many, as the team will be embarking upon several other outreach programs in and around the parish of St James”.
Constable Christopher Foster, Public Relations Officer for the Federation Constable Branch said that following the freak accident on the school compound earlier this year, where a student was accidentally run over and killed by a teacher’s motor car, the JCF has been keeping the institution under their wings.
He stated that this is just a part of several other outreach projects planned for the school.
