The Barbados National Oil Company Limited (BNOCL) has assisted 20 students of the Gordon Walters Primary School, St. Patrick’s, Christ Church, with tablets for their online school learning experience.
According to the BNOCL’s Group IT Manager, Pedro Bushell, the initiative falls under the company’s core values, as it has a strong culture of corporate social responsibility, with one of its tenets being Energy for Social Enhancement.
“Acknowledging the need for devices for school students during this trying time, we saw this as the perfect opportunity to ‘give back’ to our community and help our nation’s children,” he stated.
Each tablet was configured and tested by the school’s IT personnel and students were then asked to collect. Principal Tyrone Marshall presented the tablets to the appreciative students.
