A PRIMARY school teacher, Renita Joseph, who lost her home to a fire early Thursday morning, has received a contribution from the Ministry of Education (MoE) to help rebuild her life. The Chief Education Officer, Dr. Marcel Hutson, on behalf of the Ministry of Education, met Joseph and her family on Friday at the Demerara Good Intent site in the West Bank that the fire had robbed. Hutson presented Joseph with a Hewlett-Packard Laptop (HP) with accessories and financial help, offering words of comfort and reassurance
the commitment of the ministry during this time. Hutson said Friday’s contribution is testament to how the ministry sees and values its teachers. He told Joseph, a teacher at Belle West Primary School, that the ministry could not hear of the tragedy and turned a deaf ear. He said ministry officials are transformational leaders, and compassion is his feature.
Joseph, a final year student at the University of Guyana who is pursuing a degree in education, expressed his gratitude for the contribution from the ministry as the laptop would assist in her studies and enable her to continue teaching her students while the financial support helps the family address some of their current needs. District Three Education Department (Essequibo Islands – West Demerara), on Friday, also handed over several items to Joseph and her family including food items, clothing and footwear. Individuals interested in assisting the family can contact them at 267-1554 and 267-1408
