    Hope these students recover. Hazardous objects like these should be removed from causing any harm.

    Cut down all trees posing a risk of crashing. School doesn't need coconut as all parents will look after the need of coconuts for cooking food for their children.

    ...because one tree fallen how to cut all trees? The importance of trees in schools should be emphasized keeping them looked after well. Watcher garderners non-alcoholics needed!
