Muzarabani School Established In 1984 Gets First Classroom Block

Muzarabani School Established In 1984 Gets First Classroom Block

The Zimbabwe Red Cross Society (ZRCS) has built a classroom block for Grade 7 pupils at Chiwenga Primary School in Muzarabani’s ward 24, which is on the Zimbabwe-Mozambique border.

This has saved Grade 7 pupils at the school from walking almost 40km to Chadereka Primary School to sit for their final examinations.

Chiwenga Primary School was established in 1984 but lessons have been conducted in the open and makeshift classrooms constructed by the community.

This has negatively impacted the students’ pass rate, according to school head Francis Chirunga.

Chirunga expressed gratitude to ZRCS for stepping in to help the school as this has brought convenience to both learners and teachers. He said:

Over the years, the school has not been conducting Grade 7 final examinations as it fell short of the Zimbabwe School Examinations Council requirements due to poor infrastructure as it did not have proper classroom structures.

As such, pupils used to go and write at Chadereka, several kilometres away, something that burdened both the learner and teacher.

We are fortunate that the Zimbabwe Red Cross Society (ZRCS) came to our rescue and built a classroom to house the Grade 7s.

ZRCS has also installed a solar-powered water system in the community that is providing tapped water to the school.

Before the installation of the water system, teachers would fetch water from the Mukumbura River, where they competed with animals and villagers.

Chiwenga Primary School has an enrolment of 703 pupils and 10 teachers.

This year, 75 pupils have registered for Grade 7 examinations.

Our government failed to build the school due to illegal sanctions levied against us by the west. If you give us 5 more years, I promise you the Zanu government will clear the 3000 schools backlog before the next elections.
We will provide
