“Teachers play an important role in shaping the lives of the future of Jamaica. Our future Doctors, Lawyers, Engineers, Politicians, and others are today learning and dreaming in the Jamaica they want to live in thanks to thousands of teachers that go to work every day because they have the best interest of their students at heart. On this special day, Carib Cement wants to say congratulations and special thanks to our teachers in and around the communities of Rockfort, Windward Road, Harbour View and Bull Bay.” Carib Cement has recognized 25 of these schools in a tangible way by presenting them with tokens of our appreciation.
