the Assembly’s commitment to ensure school children have a serene and comfortable zone to acquire knowledge. He added that the desks were produced
and supplied by GETFund as part of nationwide support to public schools to improve teaching and learning.

would be served when the Assembly takes delivery of more furniture.

need of the furniture would be served first.

needs assessment conducted by the directorate.

he coastal line and rusty elements do not last long in such areas.

supplement the equipment at the schools to aid teaching and learning. She made it known that sixty-four (64) schools would benefit from the gesture.
