Trinity United Methodist Church members based in the United States yesterday donated an advanced compound microscope valued over US$800 to the Trinity United Methodist High School in New Kru Town.
Presenting the equipment, Mr. K. Advertus Karpeh, who is the chairperson for the Trinity United Methodist Church members in the U.S. said it is important that a microscope is in every science lab in every high school to enable students understand and see what science is all about.
He said members of the church in the U.S. are committed to helping the church with the school. He said they are giving back to the community by making sure that the younger generation has school materials and equipment at hand.
He explained that the Microscope has a video and share input that will enable students share what they are looking at through the microscope on screen. He urged the students to take their studies seriously and to use the equipment wisely.
He disclosed that in December, a member of Trinity United Methodist Church in the U.S will head a group called “I Help Liberia”. They will be in Liberia with five science students to help students in various schools with their science projects or courses.
Mr. Karpeh said this will enable students in Liberia get exposure and that they will be taught advanced science courses. He further said this will help students when they enroll in the university, understand and make good grades.
Receiving the equipment, the Vice Principal of Administration of the school, Mr. Gregory D. S. Geaneh thanked Mr. Karpeh and members of the Trinity United Methodist Church based in the U.S for the kind gesture and said that the equipment will be used for its intended purpose.
He said the equipment will help boost the science laboratory of the school and that students will understand the Science course better because without equipment, students find it difficult to understand and enjoy the subject.
