As part of efforts to consistently show transparency and maintain standards of academic excellence, the Lyford Cay International School has recently released a Development Report that highlights advancements made over the last year through contributions.

“We are delighted to announce that in 2009-10, we raised $1 million,” writes LCIS principal Stacey D Bobo in the report’s introduction. “This outpouring of generosity in times of such economic turmoil demonstrates the enduring value that parents, benefactors and friends see in this wonderful institution.”

The report goes on to highlight some of the areas where donations have been spent, including $353,000 on technology improvements such as multimedia Promethean Boards and ActivExpression learner response devices; $230,000 for enhanced academic and activity programmes; and scholarship and professional development funds.

“Our goal is to challenge students intellectually, promote social growth, and guide them toward independent thinking and problem solving,” writes principal Bobo. “Each and every donated dollar is an investment in our students’ future.”

The report also promotes the upcoming sixth Annual LCIS Gala Dinner and Auction to be held on March 26 at the Sheraton Resort. Over the last five years, the event has raised $1.9 million in donations.
