ENVIRONMENTAL ENHANCEMENT PROJECT AT PRESENTATION COLLEGE, SAN FERNANDO

Jan 15, 2018 - In 2015, our organization recognized our environmental commitment to be positive models in this area and approval was granted from the Principal of Presentation College, San Fernando for the enhancement of the “Pres Chill Zone”, a space that had once been enjoyed by the students during their lunch breaks and during their outdoor learning sessions quite some time ago. As time progressed the space could not have been maintained and was left barren.

Suffice to say, it was the perfect space to work with and would surely be enjoyed by the students, parents and external members of the public.
As a parent I have recognized the NEED for the students to have a safe and comfortable environment conducive to learning and being able to “take ownership” towards the care of what is theirs – their school, and by extension this will also help with their overall development as a positive role model.

This project we all understood the need for the students to be in an environment that they can be proud of. We had recognized that our young men need to have a better understanding to “taking care of their environment” and enjoy being “outdoors” at school.

However in February of 2017 the project officially commenced. The entire project has been a labor of love and we at MWTT was very pleased to handover the renamed “Pres Lions Den” to the college, alma mater to a legacy of fine gentlemen in various spheres of life, from The President of Trinidad and Tobago, Attorney General of Trinidad and Tobago, two former Prime Ministers, soca artistes and Ministers of Government just to name a few.

The college is home to 800 plus young men who epitomizes the Pres Spirit, always being Men of Honor and being part of the brotherhood assisting the less fortunate in society. Basically living by the example..Living the legacy!

The Pres Lions Den Project Manager was Mr. Kelvin Sookraj CEO of Karkel Industries Limited. Mr. Sookraj and his hardworking team worked tirelessly and professionally to ensure the project was completed to the high expectations.

On the eve of Divali the project was formal Handing Over was done amidst the joys of the students and staff alike. We are proud to say that MWTT has made an indelible mark into this prestigious college ensuring the safety and health of the students as champions for recycling with the first ever recycle bins. We will also be installing solar panels very soon for illumination and for the beautiful water feature!

We, at MWTT wish to thank all those who donated of their time and sponsorship to ensure the completion and success of this huge undertaking, the first we have ever embarked upon. Special mention to the 2017 Form Sixers led under the guidance of Mr. David Bissoon, Teacher of the college for working with us when their time allowed and to Kavinash Ali and Dariel Maurice, two remarkable students of the college for their hardwork and dedication to the project. The design/layout was done by at that time in 2016 the Top Art student of the college Arthur Khan. Thank you Arthur for helping us realize our vision! To Mr. Dexter Mitchell, Principal of PRES and his staff thank you all for allowing us the opportunity to serve you. To the Rotary Club of San Fernando South and their President 2017/18 Mr. Richard Persad, thank you so much Sir, for your immediate action in contacting your membership for the club’s approval to work with us and your  efforts to ensure we had our beautiful fruit trees and especially the two moringa plants which has countless benefits!
