Wednesday, September 14, 2016, GEORGETOWN – Mrs Sita Nagamootoo, wife of the Honourable Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo, today distributed school supplies to the children of the Vergenoegen Nursery School in Region 3 (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara).
Mrs Nagamootoo was accompanied by the Prime Minister’s Regional Representative for Region 3; Harry Deokinanan, District Education Officer (DEO); Ann Boston and Headmistress of the nursery school Sharon Bascom.
The visit to the school coincides with Education Month 2016 which is currently being observed, and Mrs. Nagamootoo believes that the timing is appropriate. “I thought it would be a good thing to come out and meet with the teachers and move around with the children” Mrs Nagamooto said.
In recent days, Mrs. Nagamootoo has been observing Literacy Day and Education Month by visiting various schools in Berbice, Demerara and Essequibo. She has brought joy to children, now starting early childhood education in Shieldstown, Albouystown, Bel Air Village, Bath, Auchlyne and now Vergenoegen.
Earlier, her ‘Do Good’ mission had so far taken her to far flung villages such as Hiawa in Rupununi, Annai, Fairfield and Surama, and to Canals Polder and other West Demerara communities.
With funds from the Ralph Joseph Charitable Foundation, named after a family friend, Ralph Joseph, formerly from Whim Village, Mrs. Nagamootoo has been visiting schools and communities and distributing sport gears, books and school supplies.
