DIGICEL has equipped the Micoud Secondary School’s newly refurbished Learning Resource Centre (LRC) with fourteen computers.

The Centre was in October of 2014 severely destroyed by fire. The school suffered a major loss and is to date still on a shift system and operating from the Micoud Multipurpose Centre and the Anse-Ger Secondary School.

The school lost all teaching and learning material and machines in the fire, from computers to photocopying machines, electronic white boards among others.

Vice Principal Mrs. Annie Maryat in receiving the machines on behalf of the school said: “We cannot be more appreciative of Digicel for such a timely donation. We are immensely grateful for their consideration of the Micoud School and I really don’t know how much I can emphasize how timely this donation is. Since the unfortunate fire incident the students have been severely disadvantaged and we haven’t been able to remedy this as ideally as we would have wanted to.”

Digicel’s Marketing and Communications Executive Louise Victor said Digicel, being a leader and the first communications company to ensure the introduction of the latest cutting edge technology to St Lucia, recognized that Information Technology was an integral part of the education and learning system.

A secondary school having its Learning Resource Centre destroyed and out of commission for six months, would be at great disadvantage in educating the students and preparing them for Caribbean Examination Council (CXC), she said.
