The Pelican Gate School in West End is seeking to raise funds for an excursion to Jamaica.
Principal Lois Freeman-Augustine said the school will be raffling a 2018 Toyota Yaris to raise funds for the trip.
More than 50 students, teachers, and parents are slated to embark on the week-long excursion.
Organisers have not finalized dates for the trip but hope to visit Jamaica early next academic year.
An all-inclusive fee of $2,000 is needed for each student who will embark on the trip.
Students will explore Jamaica’s tourist attractions as well as the island’s factories.
Freeman-Augustine said one of the benefits of the excursion is to ‘bring the school’s curriculum to life’.
“It is adding to the curriculum in a meaningful way, to help the students to understand why we cover such things. And once we cover the why, the image is a lot easier for them to learn and retain the information,” she said.
“Children will be able to manipulate a lot of the information that we study in school. I think it is going to be such an awesome experience for them on many levels. So we are really working hard to see this come through for the students,” she added.
The raffle began in June last year. However, it was halted because of the September hurricanes.
Now that the raffle has resumed, persons can source raffle tickets from parents of students at Pelican Gate.
The raffle ticket draw will take place on April 15 at The Moorings on Tortola.
Virgin Islands Motors donated the prize vehicle.
