THE Princess Fun City Entertainment Centre is currently celebrating its second anniversary of serving Guyana’s entertainment needs, and is pleased to collaborate with the Ministry of Education to award five (5) computers to deserving schools which supported Fun City’s tour initiative.The computers were presented to the five lucky schools on Friday last at a simple handing-over ceremony held at Princess Fun City Entertainment Centre. Among invitees present were Tourism Minister Mrs Cathy Hughes and Chief Education Officer, Mr Olato Sam.
Over the period February to May, 2015, Princess Fun City Entertainment Centre conducted a ‘free three-month school tours’ programme, facilitated through the Ministry of Education.
The five lucky schools were drawn from among 190 showing interest countrywide. They are as follows:
Meten-Meer Zorg in Region Three; Cottage Nursery in Region Five; J.E. Burnham Primary in Kitty, Georgetown, in Region Four; Rose Hall Estate Primary in East Canje, Berbice in Region Six; and the Wisburg Secondary in Wismar, Mackenzie, in Region Ten.
Public Relations Manager Mrs Ali Williams said: “The management of Princess Guyana believes it is our social responsibility to make a positive and lasting difference in the lives of these students; and in doing so, it is my pleasure to present five computers to the much deserving schools selected by the Ministry of Education, as this will go a far way in their studies.”
Mrs Williams said participation of so many schools and the interest of the children encouraged management to continue in this yearly programme. She assured that the entity would continue to do so.
Mrs Williams also said: “This programme was very successful. We’ve received overwhelming response from over 190 schools across the country, coming from several Regions.”
On behalf of the management of Princess Guyana, she expressed heartfelt thanks to the Ministry of Education; the Ministry of Tourism, for attending the handing over ceremony; and the schools that participated in the initiative.
Further, she announced that in addition to the computer give-aways, Fun City is celebrating its anniversary by offering reduced prices to attend movie showings, and there are special offers for the month.
