The principal of the Rampanalgas RC Primary School Ms. Nainah Ali, and fellow teacher, Ms. Racine Mohammed, recently travelled down to Port of Spain to receive 8 computer tablets from the Rotary Club of Maraval.  The tablets were donated by The People Bridge Charitable Foundation of Toronto through the kind intervention of past-member Carole Commissiong.  This was organised by PP Mary when Ms. Ali approached our club for assistance to give those pupils who had literacy issues the opportunity to do research online.  Ms. Ali described how the school's API (Academic Performance Index) had soared from a low score of 131 in 2010 to 325 in 2017, mainly due to the remedial programme introduced by Ms. Rosemary Pratt, a special education teacher who had retired to Rampanalgas after living in the States.  These tablets will motivate the children to work for themselves.  The principal's goal is to ensure that all the children will be functional and literate by the time they move on to secondary school.  This project is part of the Rampanalgas Rotary Community Corps and is an excellent example of Rotary making a difference to the lives of children in that village.
