4th annual Patricia Moniz Mem. Education Trust Fund
Five less fortunate students of the Port Mourant Secondary School were the recipients of $75,000 worth of educational and personal hygiene items and sport gear when the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club hosted its 4th Annual Moniz Memorial Educational Trust Fund on Monday last. The students were selected by the Management of the school and the criteria used to select them was their discipline, attitude and performance in the classroom.
The students – Meena Devi Sookchine, Denzil Sinclair, Akeem Hooper, Rajkumar Sookra and Tevin Mc Kenzie received the items under a joint cooperation between the Club and Ms. Nadine Budhoo, daughter of the late Patricia Moniz.
Secretary/CEO of the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club Hilbert Foster in handing over the educational packages explained to the Awardees that the late Patricia Moniz was an advisor to the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club and a stalwart of the Roman Catholic Church which is based in the same compound as the school.
Moniz, he said, always had a passion for children to pursue an educational background, as she strongly believed that education was the foundation to a successful future. Foster urged the five Awardees to always be discipline, committed and work hard to achieve their goals.
He also pledged to the students that once they remain focus that the Club would continue to invest into them. The long standing Administrator also expressed gratitude to Ms. Nadine Budhoo for keeping her mother’s memory alive by sponsoring the event and urged the Awardees to live their lives according to the example set by the late Moniz.
Head Teacher of the school, Colin Bynoe praised the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club and its different cricket teams for the huge role they are playing in assisting the school and its students and called on the five awardees to make sure that they attend school regularly and to be positive role models to their peers.
Poverty, the Guyana Teachers’ Union President said should not be an excuse to not attending school but should be an inspiration. The five awardees all expressed gratitude to the Club and Ms. Nadine Budhoo for investing into their future while committed themselves to show improvement in their school work.
The programme was organised by the Rose Hall Town Farfan & Mendes Under-15, Pepsi Under-19, Gizmos & Gadgets Under-23 and Bakewell Under-17 teams of the Club.
