Jolyn Bryan, Star Writer

Some 120 students from three basic schools in St Thomas were the recipients of books and other gifts over the Easter weekend, thanks to the generosity of the St Thomas chapter of the Lay Magistrates' Association of Jamaica (LMAJ).

Students from Pinnock Basic School in Spring Garden, Nazareth Basic School in Dalvey and Rowlandsfeild Basic School in Rowlandsfeild, were given back-to-school items including books and other supplies, while the schools themselves received two igloos each.

Additionally, the roof and classroom ceiling of Rolwlandsfeild basic School were repaired at a cost of $90,000, giving the school a much-needed facelift.

Members of the LMAJ St Thomas chapter also visited with residents at the St Thomas Infirmary last Thursday, delivering food items, and making a small contribution to the upkeep of the facility and care of the residents.

President of the chapter, Seiveright Dixon, explained that the outreach was apart of Lay Magistrate Month celebrations. He said the chapter chose these activities in light of this year's theme, 'Restoring Jamaica through Peace and Love'. The chapter closed the celebrations with a church service at the First Born Church, South Avenue, Morant Bay.
