President of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) Branch of the Tertiary Institutional Education Network (TEIN) of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Roland Morbil Bamebaya has donated exercise books worth hundreds of Ghana Cedis to the Gare Primary School in Tongo, at Talensi, in the Upper East Region.
The donation which was described as widow’s might was part of the GIMPA President’s move to help improve teaching and learning in his former school in the Talensi District.
The books numbering 500, were donated for the Gare Primary School to distribute to the pupils so as to reduce the burden on parents for buying exercise books for their wards.
Mr. Morbil Bamembaya, indicated that as an indigene of the Gare community in the Talensi district, it behooves upon him to give back to his community, hence, donating 500 exercise books to the school.
He added that “the donation was in fulfillment of his commitment to seeing the development of his people in Gare community”. Also, he urged the pupils of the school, to take their studies very serious because it remains the sure way to academic excellence.
In addition, the President donated about three bicycles to some youth in his village (Gare). After receiving the books on behalf of the school, the Head teacher of the Gare Primary School, Mr. Sompubey Boare Albert, lauded and saluted his former pupil for still having the school at heart.
The head teacher was of the view that if at last half of the former pupils of the school could donate one item or other the school would have been performing better than it is now.
Mr. Sompubey Boare invited the GIMPA Branch of NDC TEIN, Mr. Roland Morbil Bamembaya to the school’s Speech and Prize Giving Day, when date is fixed. Other former pupils were also charged to be part of the event.
