At a commissioning ceremony for a spanking new computer lab for the Kimbia Primary School on Sunday, Head of Eureka Labs, Andrew Boyle told the students in attendance of four principles that have gotten him through life which they too embrace.
The principles are: remember your roots; remember to be humble, your word should be your bond and you can become anything you want to be if you dream it.
He was the visionary behind the addition of the Computer Centre at the school which he said is his alma mater. This decision came on the heels of him being awarded the Anthony Sabga Award last year.
Boyle, who hails from the village of Kimbia located along the Berbice River, is also the President of the Rotary Club of Georgetown Central. He was moreover able to solicit the support of his Club and the Rotary Clubs of, Stabroek and New Amsterdam to bring the project to fruition.
Commissioning the Centre was Minister of Education, Nicolette Henry, who said that the facility will create technological opportunities for the residents in Kimbia and assist the Ministry of Education to bridge gaps created mainly by the difference in geographical locations.
Further, she said that the centre, which also includes a library, aligns with the government’s focus to ensure that all Guyanese can access a better quality of life through the use of information and Communication Technologies (ICT). She said that the Centre will improve connectivity between Kimbia and the coastland as well as other parts of Guyana.
Also present at the ceremony was Minister of Public Health, Volda Lawrence, who said that the project is in sync with the vision of President David Granger to raise the bar in increasing access to services in the areas outside of the coast.
