The equipment was given to the school’s headmistress, Bonita Persaud, by BVA president Gregory Rambarran. Persaud said her students would make good use of the donation and revealed plans to build a hard court in the school compound. The Mibikuri Primary School has 195 students, and the compound also houses a nursery and the Black Bush Secondary School.
The equipment was provided thanks to support from the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) and the Guyana Volleyball Federation (GVF). The aim is to provide primary school children between the ages of nine and 13 opportunities to enjoy the sport, learn new skills, acquire habits of self-discipline and cooperation, make new friends, compete fairly, and have fun in a motivating atmosphere.
