The Arnott Cato Foundation, represented by one of its board members, Margaret Hope and its administrative manager Requell Griffith, presented fifty masks in their respective school colours to the principals of Queen’s College and Ellerslie schools last Thursday.
The masks are intended to be worn by the leaders among the students at the school to set a proud example to their fellow students and to follow the protocols for mask- wearing still in place as Barbados continues to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic and the difficult task of safely educating students in these difficult times, as well as protecting their teachers and their families at home.
Chairman Sir Errol Walrond noted that the Board of the Foundation was pleased to donate the $20,000 that it required to have the masks designed and created in Barbados in the individual school colours, and looked forward to similar presentations at other secondary schools in
the near future.
The Arnott Cato Foundation is dedicated to the betterment of health in Barbados, particularly through the enhancement of training of a wide range of health personnel. One of its many programs over the years has been in the support of the Masters in Public Health Students at UWI Cave Hill, including a yearly scholarship in conjunction with the City of Bridgetown Co-op Ltd.
The Foundation is currently engaged in a series of health education programs. These programmes and other information about the foundation can be found at arnottcatofoundation.org.m (PR)
