More than $300,000 worth of infrastructural donations were granted to Glendevon Primary and Junior High School as part of NCB's Adopt-A-School Programme, launched in 2014.

The staff room received 25 new chairs, window runners and a high-performance microwave. For months, teachers at the school have been operating in discomfort as a result of inadequate and dilapidated seating, as well as a lack of other basic elements in the designated staff area.

The teachers of this institution will now have an improved working environment, following much-needed assistance from the NCB Foundation.
