Investing in our children’s future
In the 1960’s, The Tryall Club founded the Tryall Fund so as to help with the welfare and education of the people of Hanover. In 2006 it helped to build and equip a major computer facility for children and since 2008, it has been running Success By Six, a model for the education of pre-schoolers.
Success By Six was started so as to improve the literacy rate of children between the ages of three and five and to give them a head start before they begin primary school at the age of six. The projects efforts were initially focused on the Sandy Bay Community Basic School where nineteen out of twenty five year old children failed to meet the standards required to start primary education and have now spread to five more schools in Hanover. Within a year of starting Success By Six, 99 per cent of children have met the standards.
The Tryall Fund also makes available a scholarship scheme with 75 scholarships from tertiary to higher education awarded in 2017.
Each year the Tryall Fund hosts “A Taste of Tryall” so as to raise awareness of the Fund. The event is culinary celebration and presentation of over 50 villa chefs sponsored by the villa home owners.
The Tryall Fund has become an important part of Hanover parish and with your help and commitment, we can continue to make a difference to the lives of those who live there.
