It was a chilly day, but that did not take away from the excitement for students at Sandilands Primary School, as team members from Sandals Royal Bahamian hotel spread Christmas cheer with the presentation of gifts.
The hotel employees representing the Sandals Foundation once again teamed up with Hasbro in the endeavor.
Esther Cartwright, principal of Sandilands Primary, located in Fox Hill, said the Sandals initiative would help to brighten the holidays for the school’s students, some of whom, she said, wouldn’t have received a gift otherwise.
“It was heart-warming to see the excitement on their little faces when they realized how they were about to be blessed,” said Cartwright.
Lazar Delorenzo Charlton, public relations manager at Sandals Royal Bahamian, said they were happy to be able to give the students positive memories, and help to instill in them the spirit of giving.
“Keeping in touch with Sandilands Primary this year has been an absolute pleasure for my team members and I. Since we have built a relationship with this school we have literally watched some of the children grow, and we’re happy that we’re able to give them positive memories as well as help to instill in them the spirit of giving. We’re very much looking forward to engaging the school in the new year and serving the children of this community,” said Charlton.
