Thank you to the members of the Jamaican American Association of Northern California, members of the National Naval Officers Association, The Jamaica Land We Love (JALAWELO) Organization, Friends and Family who over the years have supported me in my work with the Bois Content Primary School. Earlier this month, the school celebrated 60 years. Please see link to print media coverage. I was unable to attend the awards banquet but my mother Daisy McCalla accepted the award on my behalf.
JAANC partnered with JALAWELO beginning last summer and we fund raised enough funds to build a partition at the school and purchase a computer for the Principal’s office. The computers were delivered a few weeks ago. Next month JALAWELO will begin training of the teachers on how to use the computer and various software. JAANC members, Diana & Peter Harrison have also actively participated in this project providing their Information Technology (IT) expertise. On their own time and funding, Diana and Peter drove to Bois Content and completed a site visit in June that was very helpful in assessing the IT capabilities of staff and equipment.
Thank you all. “Together we can achieve the extraordinary”.
