The donation came in with three fully intact old vehicles, three gear boxes and three engines during brief handover ceremony.
This event was witnessed by the school management, teachers, students, Bulolo District Administrator Tai Gwambelek, senior district education officers and Hidden Valley Mine representatives.
Mr. Gwambelek thanked Hidden Valley Joint Venture for providing this initiative to help the school, to give the best training to the students while the mine has also provided other forms of assistance lately.
