MP Richardson donates computers to Ruby Labega primary school

St. Maarten- Realizing the necessity for advanced technology at the primary level, Member of Parliament Frans Richardson made a timely gesture by donating four computers and a color printer to the Ruby Labega school yesterday.

While the donation may be described as a technical boost for the school, it will enable the students who do not have access to a computer at home as well as those who have access to be more computer literate.

“This is something the boys and girls will love because over the past few years we did not have computers to work with. We now have four computers and a printer, but my hope is that we can fill this lab with about 15 computers.  We always strive for excellence at this school and we want to remain at the cutting edge of technology, this is a continuation in that direction,” said Esther Jeffers, the school’s principal.

“It has always been a joy of mine to give back something to the community, I believe that the tools that are being provided for the young ones are an opportunity to take your learning to a different horizon. You can now learn how to surf the internet, because a lot of school work is being done through the internet,” Richardson said.

According to Richardson, it is important as good St Maarten citizens, not only as politicians to give back to young kids. “This is just the beginning, I will assist this school as much as possible because when I look around and see so many young boys and girls there are, it gives me joy to see that they are willing to learn and become a good generation. Then you too will be able to take care of the generation after you.”

However, Richardson could not refrain from mentioning the spate of vandalism that has been plaguing schools just after they are presented with electronic equipment. “I hope that this does not happen here, I hope that these will be safe,” he concluded.
