Angostura, Arrow to boost literacy in Laventille

Saturday, June 3 2017 (Newsday)

TEACHERS of the Success Roman Catholic (RC) School of Laventille will benefit from the Arrow Intervention Programme through the support of the House of Angostura Ltd.

The teachers are being trained to run the Arrow (Aural, Read, Respond, Oral, Write) programme in the school with full support from the Arrow Foundation. This process allows the entire school population access to the powerful literacy intervention programme and is in support of the Laventille School Project launched by Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley late last year. 

“Angostura Ltd is again at the forefront of supporting schools and children in the Laventille and environs, and see this partnership as crucial to the development of young people in the area,” Giselle Laronde- West, Angostura’s senior manager Hospitality and Communications, said in a media release.

According to Standard Five pupil Kadisha Williams, who delivered a moving valedictory speech, taking part in the training was a really wonderful experience.

“I enjoyed using the computer and hearing my own voice to learn. The ARROW programme was fun and interactive and the tutors and teachers really helped us. I am grateful to RBC and ARROW for giving us this chance to learn and improve. I feel more confident that when I write SEA this year, I will pass for my first choice. I wish that every child who needs an extra boost could get to use the ARROW programme,” said an ecstatic Kadisha.
