GOVERNMENT will soon embark on building infrastructure in schools built from grass and mud in Shiwang’andu district of Muchinga province.

Shiwang’andu District Education Board Secretary (DEBS) Annie Mutamb named Chimbwese and Bubende primary schools as having been indentified for the new learning infrastructure and teacher’s houses.

Ms. Mutambo said this in an interview with the Zambia News and Information Services (ZANIS) in Shiwang’andu today.

In another development, Mufolo Primary School Head Teacher has called on Government to give the School a face lift by constructing additional classroom blocks.

Edmond Mutauli said the construction of more  classroom blocks at the School would  enhance the recommended pupil learning environment which Would also help to promote the delivery of quality education in the


He said currently the school only has a 1×2 classroom block made out of pan bricks and mud hence the need for standard structures to be built to motivate teachers and pupils.

Mr. Mutauli however bemoaned the pupil teacher ratio at the school saying there are about 128 pupils against 2 teachers, which he believed to be affecting the performance of the pupils.

Mr. Mutauli has further called on Government to consider deploying teachers to Mufolo primary school in order to curb the problem of inadequate teachers.
