“The team is very happy and honoured to once again be a part of such a significant national initiative. We respect and applaud the efforts of our teachers who work tirelessly to establish a solid foundation of reading for our children. Here at Sygnus we believe in the importance of reading and how life-changing that can be. It was really an opportunity for us to take part in ensuring our children, who are the future of our country, are equipped and have access to additional educational resources. So we not only donated books by some great Jamaican authors, but educational games as well. We definitely had fun interacting with the children from both John Mills and Riverton. We hope that we were able to inspire the children to find the fun and gains in reading,” shared Renee Rickards, Marketing Manager at Sygnus.
