It’s a meeting of generations as Maureen Wong, principal of St Richard’s Primary School, introduces a group of her students, who are joined by Chennel Thompson (third right in uniform), deputy head girl, to National Commercial Bank’s representatives – insurance adviser Lola Johnson (second left) and group marketing manager Nichole Brackett Walters (third left). The students were encouraged to continue to work hard and maintain the institution’s reputation as a top performer in academics and sports despite a lack of resources. They were also told that a change is coming to their school that will help them along the way.

The National Commercial Bank (NCB) Foundation and NCB Insurance Company have jointly donated J$500,000 to the St Richard's Primary School. The funds will go towards a computer lab and library project, which is expected to further efforts to ensure students are well rounded.
