COURTS BOCAS SPEAK OUT SECONDARY SCHOOLS TOUR
The third Courts Bocas Speak Out Secondary Schools Tour will conclude in mid-November 2015. This nationwide secondary schools project has been a singular success and the BOCAS LIT FEST seeks the continued support of Unicomer for this initiative.
The Bocas Lit Fest, a non-profit literary organisation, celebrates its fifth year in 2015, but it has already made a significant difference to the cultural landscape of Trinidad and Tobago. Working with adults and young people of all ages, the Bocas Lit Fest has spawned and renewed interest in the literary arts, both locally and regionally.
A key objective of its project to promote and spread the literary arts is to also grow, among the young, an appreciation of self-expression and an engagement with society, in order to increase good citizenry, improve participatory democracy, and to develop each person’s potential.
Unicomer has been an important partner in this project. The Courts Bocas Speak Out Secondary Schools Tour continues to be a unique vehicle for reaching teenagers over the last 2 years. To date close to 80,000 students have been part of the audience for this event and approximately 4500 have signed up for the continuing workshops.
COURTS GIVES BACK TO THE BARATARIA ANGLICAN PRIMARY SCHOOL
Barataria Anglican Primary School has a vision to be a premiere, high performing, educational institute that unearths and nurture the innate talents and abilities of all their students. They strive to motivate their students to become respectable, productive citizens. When invited to visit this school, Ms. Nicole Loney-Mills, our Public Relations and Corporate Communications Specialist, witnessed this vision with her very eyes. Initially this establishment reached out to COURTS for one television for their school’s library and one for the senior department of the school. Ms. Mills, on observing the great work the school’s staff and principal has done for them, sometimes of their own doing, felt there was so much more to be given. COURTS rewarded the rapid increase in performance of the school’s students by not just fulfilling their request for televisions but by providing them with 10 Elearnit tablets for use in the institution, 10 Sauder Beginnings 4 shelf bookcases and 1 18CB Ft Whirlpool Refrigerator. COURTS is always happy to do their part in enriching the lives and experiences of the future.
