We know that we’re in the rebuilding of our school at the moment, but we’re still resilient and we’re looking forward to brighter and bigger days ahead. So thank you to the TCHTA for organizing the event for us today, and to the government representatives how were instrumental in getting and ensuring that the items were shipped and delivered to our school. So thank you very much to the CPS family, we are eternally grateful for you kind donation to us today,” said Sophia Garland – Principal of Enid Capron Primary.
