PHILIPSBURG-During the last two years, Foresee Foundation has shipped a considerable number of technological devices and equipment via King Ocean Shipping.
This was reason Regional Manager for the Caribbean at King Ocean in Miami, Florida Charles Gittens decided to sponsor St. Maarten schools, who are part of existing projects like DigiKidz under Foresee Foundation.
Sales Executive for CTC and Local Representative of King Ocean Services Shervin Woods explained that he was pleased and not surprised to see King Ocean Services contributing to the enhancement of education in St. Maarten.
“We are living in the 21st century and technologically advanced times. Our schools need to be upgraded to meet the demands of this era, and not to mention to continue to equip today’s students with the proper learning tools that will help them excel. King Ocean Services and CTC understands this and applauds the efforts of the Foresee Foundation in taking the needed steps to bring digital teaching and learning to our schools and will continue to assist in whichever way we can.” Woods said.
Three DigiKidz schools have set up tech teams, consisting of IT persons and tech savvy teachers, who guide the implementation and further development to ensure that policies, integration of technology in the FBE curriculum and training of staff takes place.
For the coming months, the Hillside Christian and Seventh Day Adventist schools will also work on developing a three-year strategic plan that will outline the vision and methods to fully integrate technology and ICT into the schools’ operations.
King Ocean indicated it will also assist Foresee Foundation in its future shipments of educational materials for schools from Miami to St. Maarten. President of 4C Jose Sommers showed her appreciation by thanking King Ocean for its vision and generous support.
