It is indeed sad and unfortunate that the Ministry of Education which along with Beersheba Primary School and Beersheba Old Students Association (BOSA) were required to acquiesce to there (3) criteria stipulated by Bermuda Trust Company Limited (Former Trustee) for James Richards Education Trust Fund, has adapted the culture t...
