In commemoration of its 50th anniversary of existence, the Micoud Secondary School has presented the Comfort Bay Senior Citizens Home with 10 hampers, which it says is a timely gesture due to the observance of the “International Day of the Elderly,” which was commemorated on October 1.

The presentation was made yesterday at the home in Vieux-Fort.

The school commenced the commemoration of its milestone with a series of activities which started last month with a church service in the community of Micoud.

Maurella Chedy Raymond, a teacher of the school said, “Today being the International Day of the Elderly, we have come together as a school to celebrate with our elderly persons in the community by bringing some gifts for them.”

She said the students were excited about the initiative, adding that their parents embraced it wholeheartedly.

According to Raymond, the elderly in several communities in Micoud also benefited from their gesture.

She said the school will continue with such a gesture to show its appreciation for the contribution of the elderly towards the development of their communities.

Francila Mathurin, a social worker employed with the home, thanked the school for its generosity and said the hampers will go a long way in assisting the home in providing its residents with their necessities.
