The William Marcus Natta Memorial Scholarship Fund made a donation of school supplies and teaching aids to the Irishtown Primary School on Thursday October 1.
During a brief handing over ceremony at the school, Scholarship Fund Chair, Dr Marcus/ Natta said the Fund is always ready and willing to provide assistance and give support to the school.
He also spoke of the close ties that have formed between his family and the school.
“We brought these school supplies to assist the teachers, to assist you along your journey this school year. So when you lose a pencil or your book is complete, the teacher can easily go to a stash and give you one and help you along your way. We have been in existence since April 2010 and we are continuing to grow and we look forward to supporting you even further. My father went to this school, my cousin Nadia all of blessed memory went to this school, taught at this school as well and so it takes nothing at all away from us to give back to Irishtown Primary”, he explained.
Deputy Principal Beverly Alford accepted the donation and thanked Dr. Natta on behalf of the school.
“I would like to say on behalf of the Irishtown primary school, Dr. Natta we are indeed grateful that you are and that you brought these goodies for us. We are grateful that you brought them and we want to say thank you. We know that you are indeed apart of the family here at Irishtown Primary”, Alford stated.
School supplies such as pencils, glue sticks, notebooks, rulers, crayons, scissors and many other items were presented to the school.
The William Marcus Natta Memorial Scholarship Fund, which celebrated its tenth anniversary in April, continues with its aim to foster an early love for learning to better prepare children for the real world.
The founding committee pioneered the Scholarship Fund at Tucker-Clarke Primary School in 2010 and extended the scholarship to students of the Irishtown Primary School in 2016.
