Former OECS Commissioner donates computer to students

The teachers and students of the Des Barras Combined School in Babonneau, Saint Lucia now have an Apple iMac computer that will serve as a teaching aid during classes and support the students in ICT development. The computer was donated by former Commissioner to the OECS for Martinique, Ms. Murielle Lesales.

A delegation from the OECS Commission visited the school on Tuesday, 12 February 2019 to officially hand over the iMac to an excited auditorium of students. Staff of the Commission’s Information Technology Unit also volunteered to set up the device and review its functionality with the teachers.

This latest donation reaffirms the Commission’s dedication to support the students in their studies.

The Des Barras School, the Organisation’s adopted school, was selected because of its remote location and the recommendations from staff members of the Commission to support this community.

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is an International Organisation dedicated to economic harmonisation and integration, protection of human and legal rights, and the encouragement of good governance among independent and non-independent countries in the Eastern Caribbean. The OECS came into being on June 18th 1981, when seven Eastern Caribbean countries signed a treaty agreeing to cooperate with each other while promoting unity and solidarity among its Members. The Treaty became known as the Treaty of Basseterre, so named in honour of the capital city of St. Kitts and Nevis where it was signed. The OECS today, currently has eleven members, spread across the Eastern Caribbean comprising Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and The Grenadines, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla, Martinique and Guadeloupe.
