Mayor Chenwi Peter handing benches to Head Teachers

The Mayor of the Bamenda II Council has officially handed benches, chairs and tables to some six primary schools within his Municipality.

The Mayor says he has received complaints of lack of benches from Head Teachers who say their schools have had an influx of pupils due to the crisis.

"The council has decided to make children study under a serene atmosphere. It greatly improves the teaching and learning process and makes the process easy." Mayor Chenwi told the Observer.

Mayor Chenwi Peter and the DO of Bamenda II visits refurbished classrooms

In total, 106 benches, 60 nursery school tables and 179 chairs were handed to the Head Teachers of Islamic School Old Town, Government Practicing Nursery School Social Insurance, Government Practicing School Old Town Groups I and II and Government Bilingual Practicing School Old Town Groups I and II.

In her thank you message to the Mayor, the Head Teacher of the Islamic School Old Town was very pleased with the gesture and says she had pupils mainly in the Nursery section who could barely sit on benches. This, she says is largely due to the influx of many Muslim children from the crisis stricken Divisions.

To the head teacher of GBPS Group II, he called on the Mayor to continue this wounderful exercise of supporting schools to accommodate children. "I particularly want to thank the Mayor for renovating two classrooms for us last year. We are indeed grateful." Mr Jean said.

The Mayor and Divisional officer for Bamenda II, Nicolas Nkongho Manchang, paid a courtesy visit to the refurbished classrooms and noted with satisfaction that it is well managed.

Mayor Chenwi Peter also used the occasion to explain his priority projects for 2023 with focus on health and Education. A total of 40 million has been allocated to refurbish schools around the D.Os office and other areas around Ntambag.
