GREGORY Park Primary School's breakfast programme got a much-needed boost on Friday with a donation from Jamaica Labour Party caretaker for East Central St Catherine Alando Terrelonge.

The cheque for $25,000 was presented to Richard Williams, principal of the institution located in Portmore, St Catherine, with a commitment for future donations.

Williams expressed gratitude for the donation that came as Jamaica observed Child's Day. The month of May is recognised as Child Month.

"It is a pleasure to be able to make this contribution and I thank our sponsor Marriott International Production for assisting us in making this possible," Terrelonge said.

"A major part of [our] development rests on our ability to ensure our children have every chance of learning effectively at school. It is unfortunate that many of our children go to school without a proper breakfast which affects their ability to stay focused and to learn. Every child has the right to learn. Every child has the right to be fed," added Terrelonge, who is also an attorney.
