The Kiwanis Club of New Kingston (KCNK) will host its 18th annual charity golf tournament on November 11 at the Constant Spring Golf and Country Club.

This year's tournament will be an 18-hole Stableford event, with a start time of 7 a.m. David Mais will be the tournament director.

The theme for 2017 is 'Tee Off for Charity with KCNK - Taking Primary Education to Higher Heights'. Part proceeds from this year's tournament will be used to improve the grade proficiency scores in numeracy and literacy at the Rollington Town Primary School.

One of the major thrusts of the Rollington Town Primary School project will be the establishment of a mathematics clinic, with the objective of improving numeracy competency and skill levels from 55-75 per cent to 85 per cent, in keeping with the national target for the education sector.

Golfers wishing to enter the tournament may contact president, Sandra Davis (449-2796), or chairman, Teshena Johnson (513-6042).
