A laptop and mp3 player were also given to the St. Cuthbert’s Nursery, Primary and Secondary schools to assist teachers in completing their work and to enhance learning when schools eventually reopen.

These items were provided by the Government of Guyana and were distributed by the Department of Education – Region Four.

Today, Officers from the Department are conducting a similar exercise at Moblissa.
