In an Instagram post, Fredrick Mensah, a primary one teacher in the school, revealed that the donor was touched by his relationship with his students to embark on the kind gesture.
''Good News! One anonymous person was also impressed with what I have been doing with my kids and therefore has donated bags, handkerchiefs, socks, pencils, erasers, sharpeners, etc to my 42 attendance of primary one pupils as a way of motivation in their academic performances! Thank you, Mrs Anonymous,'' he wrote.
It is not the first time the teacher has given students school uniforms. Earlier this year, he gave six pupils new school uniforms through the help of another donor.
