NVSS students receiving their dorm supplies
The nursery students were really excited to receive their brand new school uniforms and shoes. This was a special day for them because it marked the beginning of their academic journey. It was also a big day for students starting their first year of secondary school. They received supplies for their dormitories which included items like toiletries, jerry cans, sheets, pillows and mattresses. These supplies seem like everyday necessities, but for many of the students the night of February 6th was the first time they ever slept on a mattress.

Your students are looking forward to a great year thank you for making it possible for them!
