ABACO, Bahamas -- (June 29, 2012) – Amy Roberts Primary School in Green Turtle Cay, Abaco, won the RBC Family Deliveries contest, after entering an outstanding video presentation that outlined the school’s academic and athletic achievements, as well as their considerable work in the community.
In the contest, schools across The Bahamas (excluding Grand Bahama and New Providence) were invited to submit a 30-second video telling why their school should receive a "special delivery" from partners RBC Royal Bank, Dominoes, Coca Cola and Cost Rite. The “special delivery” was a deluxe pizza party delivered on Sky Bahamas Airlines to the winning school on June 15, 2012.
RBC’s Joyce Riviere, head of RBC for the Family Islands was on hand for the event and delivered a cash prize to the top three most outstanding students at Amy Roberts Primary School. Three sixth grade students, Shelby Sawyer, Nicola Roberts and Quinton Charlton, received the awards based on their academic performance throughout the past school year.
“We salute the outstanding achievements of Amy Roberts Primary School, and congratulate them on winning this very exciting contest,” said Ms. Riviere. “At RBC, one of our top community-giving priorities is to support youth and education. We know that our students represent the future of our country, and for that reason, we commit to donating 25 percent of our annual community donations budget to education-related causes each year.”
Contest submissions were received from scores of schools across The Bahamas, including Long Island, Exuma, Abaco, Andros and Eleuthera. The delivery was hosted by Dominoes Pizza and Coca Cola. Cost Rite provided the school with a gift card for school supplies. ZNS was also a partner in the promotion, providing promotional radio and television coverage of the Special Delivery project.
“This was an amazing event for our schools,” said Mrs. Keva McIntosh, principal of the Amy Roberts Primary School. “Not only were the students excited about winning the pizza party, but the process of producing the video gave us the opportunity to showcase our school. I am very proud of our students and everything they have accomplished.”
