Insurance company BF&M has donated $20,000 over two years to support extracurricular activities at Purvis Primary School.
The Bermuda Education Network’s Horizons programme uses donations from corporations to deliver sailing, arts and science lessons to primary level students in government schools. The number of schools served by the programme depends on donations.
BEN is a registered charity that provides support to public schools, providing individualised support and training to teachers and creating supplemental positive experiences for students, said a statement. John Wight, president and CEO of BF&M Ltd, said: “The future of Bermuda depends on the quality of our children’s education and the exposure they are given to enriching experiences. BF&M is excited to contribute towards offering supplemental extracurricular activities to the children of Purvis.
