The Bahamas Technical and Vocational Institute (BTVI) recently made good on a promise to Claridge Primary to build a podium for the school.

While at the school late last year to donate books during International Literacy Day, members of the BTVI team - led by President, Dr. Robert W. Robertson - noticed that they could use a new podium.  BTVI’s Head of Carpentry, Graham Thornley was charged with the design and creation of the podium and an accompanying stand.

Claridge Primary’s principal, Sharon Robinson, said the school was pleased to be the recipient of the podium and thanked the BTVI team for its generous donation. Ms. Robinson noted that the school’s logo will be placed front and centre on the lectern along with a sign indicating that it was donated by BTVI.
