Kodi don’t you pay school fund for things like these? Kapena you will blame it on APM? We during our time in MCP autocratic rule, were paying school funds to deal with these issues.


The school managememt should work hard to ensure bedbugs are eradicated. Pupils must have comfortable environment for studying.


Can these be 2015 school problems? Indicators of backsliding in the standards of living…
