“My special appreciation goes to the President of Rotary Club International in person of Rotarian Kenneth and the entire members of the Club for the renovation of 10 cubicle toilets for the development of the school and the good health habits of both the staff and pupils. This will go a long way in promoting good hygiene in the school,” she stated.
