Back to School on Nevis

The beginning of fall indicates the start of a new school year, and many generous guests have ensured school children throughout Nevis are prepared for a successful season.

With our partnership through Pack for a Purpose, guests can purchase items from the school wish lists, pack them for their Nevis trip, and leave the donations at the resort. To everyone’s delight, we collected four boxes of school supplies and books throughout the summer.

Our General Manager Tim Thuell, his wife Tina, and Reservations Manager Leonora visited three nearby schools to deliver the donations. The pictures below perfectly capture the children’s warm spirits, gratitude and joy.

Many of our resort staff’s children, nieces, nephews and grandchildren attend these local schools, so the gratitude and appreciation of guest donations extend far beyond the school. Thank you to our generous guests who helpe make a difference for the Nisbet family and community.
