Schools get cash boost from Green family

The Green family donated $18,000 worth of school supplies to public primary schools.

Each school across the island will receive $1,000 worth of supplies selected by P2 and P3 teachers.

The donation was made through community action project, Support Public Schools Bermuda, which has generated $85,000 worth of resources for primary schools since June.

Alexander Green said: “We're pleased to be able to help Bermuda's public schools and support their teachers in their mission to provide a first-class education for children.

“We hope that others will answer SPS's call to action and help out in any way they can, whether it's buying a pack of board markers or a beanbag chair — every little helps.”

Juliana Snelling, founder of SPS, said: “We are so grateful for the generosity of the Green family and we hope that their magnanimous act inspires others to support our public schools.

“Bermuda is small place but that just means that this initiative and the public's generosity can make a real impact and help to enrich our classrooms.”

SPS was founded for community members who want to support local public schools.

It encourages teachers to identify the supplies they need, from board marker pens to musical instruments to language learning software, which are then purchased for discount prices from AF Smith and Phoenix Stores.

Second-hand supplies, games, puzzles and paper are also welcomed.
