One of the citizens named Larry N. Lalla, stated, “This is a very good initiative that should be spread throughout the country where possible. Golf, among other things, is a game that focuses the mind, facilitates socializing and networking, is a good resume item and is a game that our young people can play and enjoy well into their later years. It’s good for our children to be introduced to the sport.”

Another resident, Hetty Sarjeant, noted, “A most worthwhile initiative that should be replicated throughout the country. Engaging in in sport, art, music, dance etc. helps to develop confidence, discipline and self-esteem in young people.”

These laptops were presented to the Principals and Vice Principals on behalf of Dr Rowley by members of his constituency office staff, Krishna Salick and Former Senators Yokymma Bethelmy.
