The office of the prime minister has given 300 iron sheets to six schools in Ajuri County, Alebtong District.

The Government chief whip who is also Ajuri County Member of Parliament Denis Hamson Obua handed over the 300 iron sheets yesterday at a function that took place at his home in Awei Sub County.

Among the schools that benefited from the Iron sheets were Omoro, Amugo, Akii Bua Comprehensive, Saint Tereza Girls Alanyi, Amugo Agro and  Apami primary school that each got 55 iron sheets.

Obua said the iron sheets should help schools that were facing challenges of inadequate class room blocks. 

Omoro SS headteacher Peter Ocen said his school that was established in 1984 had been grappling with the challenge of lack of class room blocks.

The Headmaster for Amugu SS, Caleb James Ogwang said the iron sheets were given in time since they already have bricks for constructing new structures.

The deputy headteacher of Akii bua comprehensive Secondary School, Jimmy Ogwal Omedi appealed to Obua to also support schools in his constituency with computers to facilitate modern learning using ICT innovations.

Ogwal Omedi also reminded Obua about the pledge made by president Museveni for a school truck.
