With its ten cricket teams, the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club (RHTY&SC), MS, last Tuesday embarked on completing 715 activities for 2021 by making a donation worth $75,000 to the Rose Hall Town Primary School.
The donation to the school was handed over to Headmistress Ms. Hollis Schwiers during a simple ceremony at the club’s Area ‘H’ Ground.
The donation includes a high-pressure water pump, water kettle, football, lawn tennis racket, face shields, bottles of sanitizer, large pencil sharpener, face masks, and a large quantity of stationery. The stationery includes paper files, pens, pencils, markers, sharpeners and erasers, among other things.
Ms Schwiers expressed gratitude to the club. She stated that the RHTY&SC has always been very supportive of her school, and she wishes the teams all the best for a successful 2021.
Club Secretary/CEO Hilbert Foster has said the Rose Hall Town Primary School and the sports club enjoy a very cordial relationship. The school produces a lot of cricketers for the club, while it also hosts the annual Christmas Village that the ten cricket teams organize on an annual basis.
The ten teams of the RHTY&SC are: Poonai Pharmacy Under 12 and 13, Farfan and Mendes Under 15, Bakewell Under 17 and Second Division, Pepsi Under 19 and Intermediate, Metro Female, Namilco Thunderbolt Flour Under 21 and First Division.
The club had successfully completed 707 activities last year.
Foster said the activities planned for this year would be held under a wide array of sub-headings, including sports, education, charity, community development, youth development, coaching, religion, anti-crime, anti-drugs, anti-suicide, and personal development, among others.
He said special emphasis would be placed on the development of the club’s cricket teams, to recruit new members and expose them to different coaching programmes, expansion of the crucial Say No/Say Yes Campaign, and further upgrading of the Area ‘H’ Ground and Office.
On Friday, the Teams would also hand over another donation to the Rose Hall Town Outpost of the Guyana Police Force.
