In his Key note address, BPC Chief Executive Officer, Dr Stefan Schwarzfischer, appreciated the needs assessment analysis that was carried out by BPC CSR team, saying the overall engagement with the school identified key areas of a provision for quality education.
"We chose to support the school's Annual Prize Giving ceremony as it motivates pupils to inculcate the culture of competitiveness in education," Dr Schwarzfischer told the gathering.
