The headmaster, Izeck Jari told parents at a prize giving ceremony on Saturday: “Mushroom is a nutritious food which would be produced at the farm to feed children and as a source of revenue.”
Jari took the opportunity to commend members of the surrounding farming community who pledged 500 bricks per child towards construction projects at the school.
“I am humbled by the generosity and understanding of members of the surrounding farming community which has offered to provide bricks. They also offered to help with cutting down of grass at the school during school holidays,” he said.
Waddilove Primary School has 669 children, of which 224 are day scholars coming from the surrounding community. If the bricks pledge materialises, the school will receive 112 000 bricks from the parents. The school is struggling to provide adequate accommodation for its teaching staff.Post published in: News
