After being away from school for five months, the students of the Antigua Seventh-day Adventist Primary School returned in September for the beginning of the new school year, September, 2020 – June, 2021. The school year, however, began with a significant challenge. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Grade two classes, similar to the other classes, required a satellite classroom. This was very difficult to manage since one room would not have consistent supervision. After considering all options, the manager of Quality Electrical Services, Mr. Eugene Benjamin, was approached.
Within a short time, Mr. Benjamin decided to visit the school and assess the needs. After consultation with the principal and the business manager, he decided that he would equip the school, specifically the Grade 2 class, with an Elmo Visual Presenter and Writing Board system. This is the same system that is used in the classrooms at the Antigua University of America (AUA).
The installation of the system began on December 20, 2020, and was completed on January 03, 2021, in time for the opening of school. Three 65” monitors and an Elmo drive were installed. A donation of a UPS was also made in the event that the electricity fluctuates or goes off.
On Monday, January 18, 2021, the system was dedicated to God. The school is thankful to the management of Quality Electrical Services for their generous contribution. May God bless them as they continue to serve their church and community.
