St George’s, Bermuda, May 19, 2019 – Airport operator and new terminal developer, Skyport, has continued to invest in the community during the global Covid-19 pandemic by providing financial support for Elliott Primary School and the Coalition for the Protection of Children.
As part of its $75,000 community investment for the year thus far, Skyport purchased over 80 Kindle Fire devices to donate to Elliott Primary, some of which are to be used by students to conduct their virtual learning at home. Some students did not have equipment at home to participate in distance learning, thus making it difficult to complete schoolwork.
Principal Kimberly Creighton says: “I am extremely appreciative of this timely donation from Skyport. We will now be able to assist our students who had challenges with accessing remote learning and make it easier for those who had to share devices.
The Elliot Primary school teachers have been doing a phenomenal job in teaching remotely. I know they will be excited to know that they will be able to see more of their students in the remote classroom.
On behalf of the Elliot Primary School Family, I would like to thank Skyport for their generous support of the school.”
