The Reaching Out Foundation, which is headed by Kevon ‘Shack’ Lettsome and Chezly Stoddard, said it will embark on an initiative to encourage students to better use the English language.
According to the foundation, it will start the initiative by donating trophies this year to the ‘most improved’ male and female students in English Language at two East End-based schools – Francis Lettsome Primary and Willard Wheatley Primary.
“The foundation felt the necessity to return the blessings to both schools for being significant players in the development and growth of their members over the years. Through this opportunity, the foundation saw the need to encourage young Virgin Islanders to write and speak English.”
“Furthermore, the foundation is now gearing up to advocate in a major way for persons to write and speak English,” added the foundation’s leadership.
It also told BVI News Online that the programme will start within the next few months.
“The foundation is letting it known in the months to come, that it will be knocking on the doors of communities, organizations, Government and business owners to join the movement to ensure all children in the Virgin Islands school system can write and speak English. At this time, Reaching Out Foundation congratulates all the 2017 graduates and wish them all the best in their endeavours.”
