Head of EdYou FM, Mr. Phillip Williams, noted that this donation is aimed towards boosting the school’s Agricultural Science Department while pushing the Ministry’s vision.

Meanwhile, the Head of the Agricultural Science Department at the Tutorial High School, Ms. Esha Ramdat, thanked EdYou FM for this generous donation, highlighting that it will significantly boost the department’s capacity.

“I would like to join the students and thank EdYou FM for this timely contribution or donation towards the agricultural science department […] And I would like to assure you, that I will ensure that our students take good care of them and they would be use for quite a number of years. So once again, thank you very much on behalf of H.M and the Agricultural Science Students and the Agricultural Science Department, as well as the students of the Tutorial High School for your donation.”

Additionally, Beyonce Lando, a student at the school, expressed her gratitude on behalf of the students and assured the team that they would take good care of the donated equipment.
