~ Simply SXM donates 12 tablets to students from MPC and Sundial School ~

PHILIPSBURG -- Twelve students from MPC and Sundial School couldn’t believe their luck when they heard they were to receive a tablet for their schoolwork.

The sudden move to distance learning due to COVID-19 has actually been challenging for many students since quite a few students do not have a functioning computer at their disposal at home. This very welcome donation of twelve tablets was made possible by a group of frequent visitors of St Maarten, who wanted to do something special for their beloved vacation location and raised funds through their Facebook group: Simply SXM.

The twelve students expressed their gratitude for this generous donation also to Jolanda van der Wart, who assisted Simply SXM with the distribution of the devices. We all hope that the frequent visitors of Simply SXM will be able to enjoy a wonderful stay on our island soon.
