CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank is helping to make C.W. Prescod Primary School’s dream of having a football program a reality.

The school aims for this programme to motivate their students to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes for success through training while the ultimate goal is to compete in the National Primary School Football Competition.

Country Head of CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank Shelly Ann Samuel, said, “Empowerment of the youth continues to be a priority for us.

Our support to C.W. Prescod Primary School to achieve their football program is confirmation of our belief in the positive role that sport plays in the lives of our young people, encompassing more than just the benefit of physical activity but life lessons for success.”

Principal of C.W. Prescod Primary School, Suzette Abbott-King expressed her gratitude for the financial support from the bank.

“We are now one step closer to helping our students towards learning important life skills and combatting unproductivity with a football programme as it teaches teamwork, discipline, perseverance, and goal setting,” she said.
