Friday last week was no ordinary day at Kubung Primary School. Botho University, who adopted the school last year, were there to bring the much anticipated ABACUS.

An abacus is basically beads that slide on rods and used to count, add, subtract, multiply and more. The origin is reportedly unknown but Wikipedia reckons the counting tool was in use in the ancient Near East, Europe, China, and Russia, centuries before the adoption of the written Hindu–Arabic numeral system.

Welcoming their foster parents, grateful School Head said; “It’s a great day. Botho has brought us results with their initiative to improve results. This is also in line with the ideals of Vision 2036 of achieving prosperity for all.
