Positive re-culturing

The National Interschool Brigade Movement (NIBM) received a donation from the Betting Gaming and Lotteries Commission (BGLC) to assist with the staging of the National Behavioural Summer Camp, July 18 to 31. The summer camp assisted students from primary and secondary schools who display behavioural and antisocial issues. It aimed to positively groom and re-culture the at-risk students in an organised, alternative education setting by helping them to refocus on their true purpose and the need for them to become value-added members of their families and schools.

Kerinth Campbell, interim executive director, NIBM, and Devon Watson, assistant inspector general, NIBM, received the donation for funding for medical services and notebooks from Jeanette Lewis (2nd left), manager, corporate affairs & communication, BGLC. Looking on is Richard Henry (left), programme manager, RISE Life Management, who will deliver underage gambling prevention presentations to the camp participants.
