Speaking at the tree planting ceremony, the CEO of AICC, Dr. Felix Lombe said that considering the problems the school is facing such as the blowing off of the roof of school one of the school blocks, AICC though it wise to come up with such initiative of planting trees surrounding the school.   In his remarks, he said that tree planting in the area is crucial in the sense that it will help to serve rice farmers with adequate water for their schemes in the long term.  He further urged the community to take care of the trees planted.
