Today, Saint Peter’s Anglican Primary School held one of their biggest fund raisers at the school compound which saw the participation of all the students and teachers. Teacher Rolando Umania told us more about the initiative.

And just as there were several food stalls there were also game booths that the children and visitors enjoyed very much. Olivia Mesh, a teacher at the school, oversaw the roulette which she says was very popular with the crowd this year.

Olivia Mesh – Teacher

“Yes, so far we have I cannot count how many winners we have but we have already given a lot of prizes and we still have some people coming more to play, and they really love the game.”
