THE JPS Foundation has officially launched its second model school project at Falmouth Gardens Basic School in Trelawny, in which it will this year invest more than $2 million, as part of a three-year programme to help the school meet the basic standards established by the Early Childhood Commission.
Kelly Tomblin, JPS president & CEO, along with Sir Kenneth Hall, chairman of the JPS Foundation, recently broke ground for the construction of a new play area and a perimeter fence to ensure the security of the more than 40 children attending the institution. Falmouth Gardens is one of three schools identified by the JPS Foundation to be converted into model schools over three years. The other schools are in Clarendon and Kingston. The JPS Foundation and its donating partners are this year investing approxi-mately J$27 million in education and youth leadership development.
"We are placing special emphasis on early childhood education through our nutrition programme and the Model School project to help ensure that a solid foundation is established for Jamaica's children," said Tomblin.
Through its nutrition programme, the JPS Foundation currently provides support for approximately 26,000 children in early childhood institutions across the island.
