Bus shed for Alness

A newly built bus shed, donated by Mr. Reagan Persaud of the USA, was last Friday handed over by Mrs. Sita Nagamootoo, wife of the Prime Minister, to the residents of the Corentyne village of Alness, in East Berbice, Region Six.This bus shed will especially benefit students of the Alness Primary School.

“This is a wonderful gesture, and I am sure it will benefit the students tremendously. It was a wonderful initiative that coincides with Education Month,” Mrs. Nagamootoo remarked.
In brief remarks, Mr. Gobin Harbajan, Representative of the Prime Minister in Berbice, explained that the head teacher of the school had pointed out that whenever it rains the students get wet, since the school is located further in the street; and when students get off the bus, there is no shelter at the head of the street.
“These little contributions from people make a huge difference in communities,” he declared.
