Under the charter, the PSOJ committed to encourage all employees to adopt good road safety behaviour.

FRESH START: “Do not demonstrate road rage behaviour” is one of the challenges on the employee road safety charter that members of the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica (PSOJ) will be asking their employees to undertake when they commit to be a part of good road safety practices. The PSOJ road safety charter was signed at Jamaica House on Thursday, February 3 by Chairman of the National Road Safety Council (NRSC) Prime Minister Bruce Golding and President of the PSOJ, Joseph M Matalon. Standing (from left) are Executive Director of the NRSC, Paula Fletcher and Vice Chairman of the NRSC, Dr Lucien Jones.

The homework centre, which is a collaboration between the Jamaica Public Service Company and a past student of the Denham Town Primary School, Jeffrey Reid, features 23 computers providing a quiet place for students and the surrounding community to learn to use the computer, study and complete assignment. “If we can try to build some more of these then it is not only Denham Town Primary which will benefit but so many other really worthy demanding, compelling needs will be filled,” PM Golding said in his address at the Opening Ceremony of the Centre at the Denham Town Primary School.
