Kaparo also urged children to concentrate more on education work since it was the only important gift that they can get from their parents.

“Education is important tool which every one should be armed with and so we are trying to make sure enough classes are there for you children. We have also provided 40 desks so that you can perform well like other schools elsewhere,” he noted.

He urged pupils to make use of the desks and new classes by studying and cooperating with teachers for good performance.
