BCIC CREATING DISTINCTION IN OUR COMMUNITY 3

BCIC Creating Distinction In Our Community

BCIC in partnership with the St. Andrew’s Scots Kirk United Church will be launching our second phase of the Education For Life Programme in which BCIC staff volunteers will be assisting with teaching and homework supervision.

Giving is a two- way street… when you give of your time to the Education For Life Programme you receive the priceless benefit of knowing you have made a difference in a child’s life. We are inviting you to fellowship with us at the St. Andrew’s Scots Kirk United Church’s Child’s Month service which will be held on Sunday, May 17th 2015 starting at 10 a.m. at 43a Duke Street, Kingston. We will be handing over our sponsorship cheque and we are encouraging you to share with us in this special occasion.

This year BCIC will not only be providing financial assistance with the Education For Life Programme but we will also be providing additional support through the incorporation of 11 BCIC staff members, namely, Maiha Reid, Sashane Davidson, Debbie-Ann Leslie-Campbell, Nashoon Haye, Yvette Owen, Shayon Prehay-Thompson, Sheron Ragbeir, Davee Williamson, Owen Duckie, Kimberley Morgan and Nastasica Robertson who have happily volunteered to provide instruction and homework support. ‘Every Child Can Learn, Every Child Must Learn”, the Ministry of Education’s position and also the vision of BCIC which moved us to deepen our partnership with St. Andrew’s Scots Kirk United Church and guided our commitment to creating distinction through the Education for Life Programme.

BCIC welcomed the opportunity to support the church with the initiation of the Education for Life Programme, as such; in celebrating our 50th Anniversary we presented the church with a cheque at our Thanksgiving Service on October 21, 2012. Through this gesture, BCIC has assisted immensely with the Education For Life Programme aimed at facilitating homework, literacy, numeracy and personal development of children between the ages of 6- 15 years. The Education For Life Programme offers academic support for 20 students of St. Aloysius and Holy Family Primary, Calabar Primary and Junior High schools. In an effort to assist the students in reaching their full potential, the Programme is designed to offer assistance with Remedial Reading, Homework Supervision, Information Technology, Study Techniques and Personal Development.
