Lockhart Principal Bowry with some of her students aboard the ms Prinsendam
Lockhart Elementary School received two donations from Holland America Line’s ms Prinsendam docked at WICO on Friday, March 9, 2018.
The Prinsendam crew presented the first donation in the amount of $5, 172 to Education Development Director Steven Walters on behalf of the school’s principal Audrey Bowry and a handful of her students aboard the ship. The money was raised through an art auction that took place in the ship’s art gallery during its voyage.
Following the presentation by the crew, the students and Education officials in attendance were treated to lunch on the ship’s main deck where they enjoyed a buffet selection of international dishes.
Following a hearty lunch, the Prinsendam crew took the Education group on a grand tour of the vessel. Approaching the end of the tour, the crew then gifted the school all of the monies collected in the drop-in box at the guest services desk.
The monies donated to Lockhart Elementary will benefit the school’s art program to purchase supplies for students.
The donation effort was coordinated in partnership with the Department of Tourism.
