The St. Martin’s Secondary School Past Students’ Association (SAMPASA) showed their appreciation to Mrs Sylvia Ferdinand, better known as ‘Ms. Ferdie’ of Ferdinand’s Groceries.
Mrs. Ferdinand has over the years provided generations of students at the schools in the Lower Kingstown Park and Pauls Avenue areas, including the St. Martin’s Secondary School, with meals to fit their budget.
However, she never wavered in her generosity to provide lunches for many of these students who could not afford.
Additionally, Mrs. Ferdinand Grocery Shop was a platform for training individuals who went on to open their own businesses.
Her compassion, generosity and selflessness will be acknowledged, celebrated, and honoured. The Past Students bestowed an honour upon Mrs. Ferdinand on Friday, September 18th at a short ceremony at her residence.
