Angostura, Arrow to boost literacy in Laventille
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.
The House of Angostura which is a manufacturer of world-renowned and award-winning products is located in Laventille.
The Success Roman Catholic (RC) School is situated mere minutes away at Church Street.
Christopher Bonterre, managing director, of the Arrow Foundation praised the efforts of Angostura in bringing the programme to life for these students and teachers.
“It provides us with the impetus to continue to meet the educational needs of the nation’s children. Arrow’s focus is on raising self-esteem through literacy improvement, which is vital to addressing behavioural problems in students,” Bonterre said.
