0

Mufumbwe Secondary School Head Teacher, Morgan Lusamba, has appealed to government to construct a new laboratory at the school after the old one was gutted in 2012.

And Mufumbwe District Board Secretary (DEBS), Collins Masumba, reiterated the need to put up a laboratory at the Mufumbwe secondary school saying not doing so would lead to damage to equipment and chemicals that were procured for the laboratory.

 

Mr Lusamba said lack of a laboratory has affected learning of science subjects at the school, a situation he said would affect pupil performance during examinations.

He  disclosed that the school through the PTA has put up a 1×3 classroom block to help address classroom space at the school.

ZANIS reports that the Head Teacher was speaking in Mufumbwe today when Mufumbwe Member of Parliament (MP) Stephen Musamba inspected programmes at the school.

Mr Lusamba has since called on government to quickly finish the more than K20 million kwacha boarding school under construction in the district.

He said this would also help reduce on the challenges of classrooms in the district.

And Mufumbwe District Board Secretary (DEBS), Collins Masumba, reiterated the need to put up a laboratory at the Mufumbwe secondary school saying not doing so would lead to damage to equipment and chemicals that were procured for the laboratory.

Mr Masumba explained that the school was in receipt of laboratory equipment and chemicals which were the main need before the laboratory was gutted.

But Mufumbwe Member of Parliament (MP), Stephen Masumba, has assured that government will soon complete the boarding school to benefit more than 400 pupils in the district.

Mr Masumba also said government through the Disaster Management and Mitigation Unit (DMMU) had already started working on ways of setting up a new laboratory at Mufumbwe secondary school.

Mr Masumba disclosed that DMMU was aware of the challenges that were been faced in the district.

Speaking in an interview with ZANIS after inspecting schools in Mufumbwe Mr Masumba affirmed that government will continue implementing developmental projects in the education sector.
