– Donates computers and boom boxes
By Rawle Welch
Well-known for ‘bringing value home’ Courts, the official sponsor of the Primary Schools Pee Wee Football Tournament gave a lucid demonstration of its trademark sobriquet after committing to rewarding all sixteen (16) schools confirmed to participate in the competition which commences on October 20 with eight matches, at the Thirst Park ground.
Yesterday during a simple ceremony conducted in its Boardroom on Main Street, Courts (Guyana) Inc. Marketing Executive Molly Hassan disclosed to Directors of Petra Organisation Troy Mendonca and Marlan Cole (organizers of the tournament), Courts Main Street General Manager Pamela Humphrey, Marketing Assistant Kester Abrams, Ministry of Education Physical Education Officer Nicholas Fraser, and the media that the Company will be giving
Desktop Computers to the top four finishers, while every school that participates will benefit from the donation of two Coby Boom Boxes apiece in addition to trophies and medals.
Hassan, a former tennis player and avid sports enthusiast said that because the Company strongly believes in the holistic development of youths, they felt inclined to offer additional prizes in support of their view to not only expand the students on-field skills, but their academic abilities as well.
According to the Marketing Executive, in addition, they see the donation of the items as serving to motivate the players to strive to display a high level of football on a stage specifically designed for them to showcase their skills.
Mendonca, in his presentation outlined the format of the tournament, adding that from the composition of the fixtures, one could clearly see that the intent is to give every school the opportunity to play on every playing day since the aim is to keep them active throughout the competition.
The teams will be divided into four groups with each comprising four schools and will be played on a round-robin basis with the top two progressing to the quarter-finals, while the remaining two from each group advance to play for the ninth to sixteenth place finishers.
Fraser in his remarks expressed gratitude on behalf of the Ministry to Courts (Guyana) Inc. and the Petra Organisation for conceptualizing such an important event, adding that they are looking forward to a well organized competition.
Commenting on the donation of the computers and boom boxes, Fraser informed that the gifts will definitely aid the students with their Interactive Radio Instructions (IRI) sessions which are coordinated by NCERD.
Abrams assured that the collaboration is a good one and the Company will continue to be on board in the future.
Meanwhile, opening day fixtures are as follows: Marian Academy versus St. Pius from 10:00 hrs; St. Sidwell’s vs. Ketley; Green Acres vs. Sophia; Tucville vs. St. Gabriel’s; West Ruimveldt vs. Success Academy; St. Margaret’s vs. F.E Pollard; South Ruimveldt vs. Redeemer and North Georgetown vs. Enterprise.
