Global gaming technology provider GTECH recently took Christmas cheer to St Michael's Primary, Holy Trinity High and the Jamaica Christian Boys' Home as part of its activities to mark the season of giving.

St Michael's Primary is one of the six GTECH After School Advantage Programme Centres in Jamaica, having been officially opened in May of this year.

GTECH's After School Advantage Programme invests US$15,000 (J$1.56 million) to open and maintain each of the centres established.

Since 2006, GTECH Jamaica has provided assistance to a number of schools and institutions, including Lawrence Tavern and Easington Primary schools, Sylvia Foote Basic School, the University of Technology, Caribbean Maritime Institute, Portmore Community College, Dunrobin Primary School, Holy Trinity High School, the Jamaica Christian Boys' Home and SOS Children's Village in Stony Hill, and Barrett Town in Montego Bay.

More than 200 GTECH-supported After School Advantage Programme Centres operate globally.
