“A child who reads will be an adult who thinks” – The children of the San Pedro Roman Catholic School are happily enjoying the wonderful books found at the newly renovated library.
The San Pedro Roman Catholic School reached out to the community of San Pedro for assistance in form of donations to be able to fix their library that was in dire need of repairs, the building had broken doors and windows and the exterior walls are all rotting and falling apart.
Heading the fundraising initiative was Catherine Whitney also known by the students as “Teacher Kate”. She has been volunteering at the library for several years now. The children have grown to love and appreciate everything Teacher Kate does and love spending time with her at the library reading stories and doing other fun activities.
With the help of the entire community the building was reconstructed and the children can now safely enjoy fun reading activities and arts and crafts with Teacher Kate. A huge thanks goes out to the following donors for their generous donations in order for the building to undergo its necessary renovations: Reef Island Accounting Ltd , Portofino, San Romano Belize Ltd ,Reef Resort Ltd, McCainn & Fisher Ltd, Reef Management & Consulting Services, and to all those who made Anonymous donations from abroad.
