Students of the class of 1987 from the Dominica Grammar School (DGS) have kept their words and have made their first monthly contribution to the school of EC$1,000 which will go towards pastoral care.
The students recently registered a non-profit group C-87 and have, over the past months, been in constant touch with the school to find ways and means where they can make various contributions.
Jason Jno Baptiste the proprietor of One Pot is a former student of that school and part of the Class of 1987 dubbed “C-87”.
“We are making our monthly contribution to pastoral care at the Dominica Grammar School as part of our commitment to give back to the school and also to assist the students to be better students in the near future when they leave the school,” Jason Jno Baptiste a representative of C87 stated.
In her acceptance speech, the principal of the school Alicia Jean Jacques thanked the students for their kind gesture saying that the school is “so appreciative for the contribution.”
“You are selfless in what you do…you are giving back to your alma mater and making life so much more comfortable for students at the DGS, we are really appreciative and I am so very thankful,” she said.
Recently, C-87 made donations to students at the school to assist them in paying for their CXC exams in 2021.
The school will be celebrating “Founders Day” this week and the students of C-87 are expected to play a meaningful role during the celebrations.
