ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - NAGICO Insurances, Virgin Islands (VI), continues to exemplify good corporate citizenship with a donation of sport uniforms to the Isabella Morris Primary School in Carrot Bay.

On Monday February18, 2013, the school staged its annual sports activities at the at the A. O Shirley Grounds and students proudly wore their new attire.

NAGICO developed strong ties with the school in 2008 through the Ministry of Education’s Adopt-a-School initiative intended to forge partnerships between schools and businesses to create an enhanced learning environment.

“We are very pleased that we can continue to provide support to the Isabella Morris Primary School because we believe that an investment in the future is the right investment for the BVI. We are a company with a keen interest in seeing the BVI develop to its greatest potential and it starts with children,” said Managing Director of NAGICO Insurances, Virgin Islands, Mr. Shan Mohamed.

Students are divided into two houses for sports day activities – Penn House and Donovan House. They participate in various running events, including the 100 meters, 150 meters and 200 meters among others.

Mr. Mohamed explained that through sports students build character and learn many valuable lessons that will be used to help them navigate through life.

“At NAGICO we work as a team with our customers. It is this concept of team that is instilled from a very early age that can be applied by the students as they move through school and into the world of work. We are also fully aware of the tremendous physical benefits derived from participating in sports and we hope that through our donation we would have motivated the Territory’s next top athlete to do their best,” Mr. Mohamed stated.

Principal Sylvia Adams welcomed the most recent contribution and explained that students are very happy.

“Our students wore their new jerseys with pride. They were happy because if they did not get the donation they probably would have had to wear the wash-out jerseys that they have been wearing for some time. We were hoping to raise funds to offset the cost of the new uniforms, but our efforts fell short. NAGICO came to our rescue and we are very happy for their continued support,” stated Principal Adams.

NAGICO previously provided the school with three digital projectors, three five-gallon water coolers, and other needed school supplies such as books and pencil cases for students.

At the time of NAGICO’s adoption of the school, the company made a commitment to provide an annual contribution of not less than $5,000, which will either be in the form of learning material, equipment, or financial assistance based on the needs of the school.
