The Rotary Club of Limbe on Saturday donated teaching and learning materials to Kachere Junior Primary School in Zomba to contribute towards attainment of quality education among learners at the institution.
The items, valued at K350 000, included English grammar and literature books and footballs and jerseys to help the pupils to engage in sports.
Speaking in an interview after making the donation made in partnership with Leeds Grammar School of the United Kingdom (UK), Rotary Club of Limbe president Mohamed Tayub said the donation was made to complement government efforts to enhance basic quality education in primary schools.
He said: “We are in a drive to partner with government in promoting quality education in the country through the provision of teaching and learning materials as well as building decent schools, among other needs.”
Tayub advised the pupils to concentrate on their studies if they are to become productive citizens and support their parents, stressing that the future of the country depends on them.
Speaking after receiving the items, the school’s manager, who is also a missionary, Ovi Cornea, thanked the Rotary Club of Limbe and its partner, Leeds Grammar School, for their kind gesture.
He said the items would be used judiciously to enable the pupils attain quality skills and knowledge to excel in all their endeavours.
However, Cornea appealed for support from government and people of goodwill to help live the aspiration of the school to become a full primary school. n
