THE Usain Bolt Foundation has secured licences for a Mathematics software which is the only software in the region which comprehensively covers the CXC/CSEC Mathematics syllabus designed for students' success.

The Foundation has donated 20 licences which were handed over the schools recently. This will help in preparation for exams this year and beyond. The EPAVE Mathematics software is an e-learning software that covers the CXC/CSEC Mathematics syllabus using computer graphics, animations and audio.

All lessons are presented by carefully structured narrations to guide the user through the course which also contains hundreds of questions and solutions accompanied by detailed explanations of the incorrect answers.

Playground and Recreational Equipment valued at just under US$25,000 will benefit over 1,000 children up to 12 years of age in Portland later this month. The donation of the equipment is part of the Foundation's mandate to facilitate a healthy and safe environment and effective use of a recreational facility. The names of the schools will be announced later.

Uniforms for Physical Education were donated to Piedmont Basic School in Trelawny in March as part of the Foundation's support to children under 12. Students and teachers at the school benefitted. Jamaica Paralympic Association is also to benefit from a donation for its preparation for the Paralympics, also in London this Summer.

The Foundation donated US$25,000 to the Corporate Run as a part of a J$33 million fund-raiser for the Cardiac Surgery department.
