Limbe Leaf Corporate Affairs Director, Febbie Chikungwa, said the donation was part of the firm’s corporate social responsibility.
Chikungwa said books donated include teaching guides, text books, non-syllabus fiction and non-fiction books.
“Our intention is to create a conducive learning environment that attracts learners and keeps them in school,” Chikungwa said.
Limbe Leaf has been supporting the school since 2013.
Among other things, the firm has over the years, constructed six classrooms, rehabilitated a two-classroom block, built toilets and provided a borehole.
