A church in England recently donated teaching and learning aids to Archdeacon George Memorial Nursery and Primary through the Anglican Bishop at ChristChurch in Serekunda.

St. Mary's Church, Hellesdon, Norwich in England, presented a variety of teaching and learning materials and learning aids through the Rt. Rev. Dr. S. Telwa Johnson, the Parish Priest and Bishop of Banjul for the Anglican Mission. Bishop Telewa Johnson said, "I am delighted with this genuine and efficient partnership. I promise to include a visit to the church in my itinerary for the Lambeth conference."

K.C. During, a parishioner at St. Mary's Church Hellesdon, presented the items. The school reciprocated by presenting Gambian made alter linens to their counterparts.

Christopher Manley, the Anglican Education Secretary, commended their friends for the laudable gesture. He said, "the materials are appropriate and will serve their purpose well."

In thanking their visitors, a pupil of the school, Elizabeth Jarjue said they were filled with joy at having received the items. She said that the gifts would go a long way towards promoting their school to even greater heights. She prayed for the donors and presented a gift on behalf of the school.
