The Executive Chairman SUBEB, Dr Stephen Odey said these farm tools will enable teachers and pupils carry out  practical lessons which will give pupils a better understanding  of crop cultivation. He further urged teachers to put tools to good use and  protect tools against theft and vandalism.

Dr Odey thanked Governor Ben Ayade for providing the 2018 matching grant which he said has gone a long way in improving the standard of basic education in the state.

Some of the tools include, Watering cans, wheel barrows, hand hoes, spraying machines, measuring cylinders, fork shovels, amongst others.
