Former Senator Gerald Ramdeen has set up a homework centre in Cedros to assist the students of eight schools, who lack access to devices and the Internet.
The students from Cedros Secondary, Icacos Government Primary, Lochmaben RC Primary, Cedros Government Primary, Cedros Anglican Primary, Coromandel Anglican Primary and Granville RC Primary will have access to the centre.
Ramdeen said “The communities will receive a fully equipped virtual classroom and learning centre that is outfitted with photocopying facilities, full internet access, a library and laptops, together with school supplies. These will all be supplied free of charge to the children of these communities.”
“Two permanent teachers will also be present to assist the students, parents and teachers of surrounding schools in accessing unlimited internet access and photocopying facilities.”
The centre, which was created under Ramdeen’s charitable foundation, Help T&T, will officially be launched today at Bamboo Village, Cedros.
