THE Matura Government Primary School received a facelift from Scotiabank employees in commemoration of United Way’s National Day of Caring 2023.

A release from the bank said that its employees and their families came out on Sunday to repaint the exterior of the school.

The National Day of Caring is United Way’s volunteer employee engagement event. Corporate partners engage with their employees to give of their time and energy for projects of their choosing.

Scotiabank has participated in the National Day of Caring since its inception in 2013. The theme this year was “Show You CareEverywher.”

Cindy-Lou Dannett, the school’s Acting Principal said, “With happy hearts the staff at Matura Government Primary School express gratitude to, our Scotiabank family, for your generosity and selfless labour.
