We’re excited to announce that Necker Island is our third property to become a member of Pack for a Purpose! On Necker Island we’ve teamed up with The Robinson O’Neal Memorial Primary School and Pack for a Purpose to provide vital tools and equipment that are needed everyday by the pupils and teachers.
Pack for a Purpose allows hotels around the world to support local projects by suggesting lists of donations that guests may wish to bring in their suitcase that can make a priceless impact to the lives of the local children and families. Kasbah Tamadot and Ulusaba have also joined the great cause too!
In 1971 the school opened its gates and became one of the first schools on the BVIs to be housed in a public building dedicated to education only, before schools were housed in churches.
Thanks to generous donations the school has evolved from a one room building housing two classrooms to four classrooms, a kitchen and a computer lab. The number of students keep growing and all contributions are a big help!
