Rainforest gives teachers a welcomed break

Iris Gelly Primary School teachers are ready to embark on a day trip to Grand Bahia Principe Resort in St Ann last Friday as Rainforest Seafoods’ Director of Marketing and Corporate Affairs Roger Lyn presents a cheque to Vice-Principal Sybil Vidal-Whyne to cover the cost of the entire venture.

Rainforest’s gesture was in recognition of Teachers’ Day observed earlier this month.

The company said it was more than happy to extend the trip to the teachers, given that they had been under a lot of stress navigating the difficulties posed by the novel coronavirus pandemic.
