Maintenance of the school property


Explanation:
1.If you say Maintenance of school property, it means property of any school.Therefore, "The " must be added to make the school definite because in the arabic phrase there is ا ل
2. If you say school's properties, You will make two mistakes:
A. As I told you previously , there is no "no"
B.Property is uncountable, so it can not be plural.
