Kumba II Council Offers Classrooms  To Nursery School

Story, Prince Oben

The  Kumba II  Council in Meme division, South West region has offered  two classrooms to  Government  Nursery  School, Pulletin Quarters  commonly known as  Metta  Quarters  within the same municipality.

The donation was handed to authorities of the school  during a recent  ceremony. The second deputy Mayor  of the kumba II Sub divisional council, Vivian Aigona Chibili, represented the Mayor, Mbachu Jacob Kay at the event.

Government Nursery School, Pulletin quarters have survived since its existence on a rented plank structure. The owner of the  plank structure  had  threatened  eviction if the rents are not paid.

That’s how it took the kumba II Sub divisional council to make an appeal to the Government through the 2020 minimum package of the Public Investment Project of the Ministry of Basic Education.

The response was prompt.  The outcome is the construction of two  befitting classrooms for the institution of learning that can take many kids with each having double  doors and modern writing board which are less chalk-consuming.

Handing over the classrooms to the Inspector of Basic Education for kumba II Sub division, Ivo Matuke Ebako, for onward transmission to the school Authorities, Aigona Chibili, expressed words of thank you to the Nfon of kumba and Paramount Ruler of the Bafaws, His Royal Majesty, Nfon Mukete IV Ekoko.

The  deputy  mayor  thanked the Nfon for providing appropriate the land for the construction of  the classrooms. Chibili called on the Inspector of Basic Education to always supervise the usage of the classrooms.

Passing over the keys of the classrooms to the Head Teacher, Ivo Matuke Ebako, prescribed  judicious use. Matuke  enjoined the Head  Teacher  to collaborate with the Quarter Head of Pulletin to scout for kids to attend school free of charge since it is a Government institution.

He warned:” No fee should be collected from the kids”. Other concerns raised were an office for the Head Teacher; a Staff Room and school toilet which the Second deputy Mayor promised to channel it to the Mayor who, like Olivier Twist, would knock the doors of the powers that-be.

Since the CPDM Party-led council came to power last year, it has donated many classrooms to schools in the Basic Education sub sector in the municipality.  The council is bent on making the difference within this first mandate in terms of development.
