ZIZ News…March 3, 2010 – The Minister of Youth Empowerment, Sports, Information Technology, Telecommunications and Post, the Honourable Glenn Phillip, has delivered on his promise to provide computers for young school children in the area he represents, Constituency # 4.
Minister Phillip recently made a return visit to the Tyrell Williams Primary School to present the pupils and staff with 11 computers kindly donated by Windsor University. On a previous visit to the school Minister Phillip had promised that he would come back to the school with something tangible, and he has with the arrival of the computers.
Minister Phillip told the pupils and staff at the school: “The last time I came here I was told that the computer lab was basically non-existent. We had no functional computers at this school and I was determined upon my return that I would not come empty handed, I would come with something tangible so that the students of Tyrell Williams would be able to benefit. I am back with 11 computers donated by Windsor University. I believe that no child should be left behind; I also believe that this school plays a vital role in educating the next generation, so we have to start and continue that legacy of educating our young people. So this donation is just a small token of what we will be able to do for this school in the near future.”
Mr Edwards, the Headmaster of the Tyrell Williams School thanked Minister Phillip for delivering on his promise to provide the school with computer equipment. Mr Edwards told the Minister:
“We want to thank you for being instrumental in getting the computers for us. For a long time as you said, our computer lab was down and you were up here some time ago and we put our problems to you and you promised you would deliver and you have delivered. I want to assure you and the officials at Windsor University that the computers will be well taken care of.”
