Westbury Primary School gets helping hand
When school reopens later this month, Westbury Primary School students will be returning to spruced up bathrooms.
Yesterday, Oran Limited in conjunction with Do It Best, came together to fix up the washrooms at the Westbury Road, St Michael school which were in dire need of refurbishing.
Operations manager at Oran Limited Justin Oran said it was the idea of the company’s social committee since most of the staffers had children who attended the school.
“The social committee was created to increase social activity among the staff of Oran, to have more volunteerism, a bit of giving back in addition to the regular charities and causes that Oran has adopted over the years. So we challenged the staff to come up with a cause that was important to them and it was suggested that Westbury Primary School since a lot of the staff’s kids come to school here and it would be a good cause because the bathrooms were in need of some painting and some refurbishment. So based on that, the committee put this together and here we are today lending a hand,” he said.
“I am thrilled because we were getting lots of problems with the bathroom because it’s rather old and we had to do repairs to it very often. We are happy that they are not only going to paint the bathroom but they are going to change all the fixtures in them. It’s good when corporate Barbados can give back to society, especially the schools,” Alleyne said.
