Joanne Missick, Country Manager, Flow Turks & Caicos, said: “As an alumnus of the HJ Robinson High, I am very pleased to make this announcement today as we celebrate the 19th edition of Safer Internet Day 2022 (SID2022). Additionally, in partnership with Fundación VTR & CWCF, we published a free Internet Safety Guide for Parents to support the conversation of protecting children in the digital world, and also today as part of its local activities to mark SID2022, Flow joined UNICEF ECA & the Ministry of Education, to bring together social workers and guidance counselors for a virtual training which provided practical ways to promote internet safety and work with young people in an empathetic way.”
Minister of Youth, Education, Employment and Library Services, Hon. Rachel Taylor graciously remarked in her address during this week’s Cabinet meeting that, “Improving internet capacity in our schools continues to be of high importance. I want to take this opportunity to thank Flow & the CWCF for yet another generous donation and their partnership with the Ministry of Education, and by extension students and parents across the TCI."
HJ Robinson High becomes the fourth upgraded school this year that will become a fully connected high-speed school powered by the latest generation fibre optic technology. In total, the CWCF & Flow has helped to deliver a total of $79,000 in upgrades to transform and enhance the learning culture in schools across the Turks and Caicos.
