Govt directs N/West education official to reassemble desks

Economy Govt directs N/West education official to reassemble desks

North-Western Province Minister, Kenneth Chipungu has directed the Provincial Education Officer to take inventory of all desk frames lying idle in the province so that desks could be reassembled.
 Mr Chipungu said it was sad that most schools were complaining of shortage of
desks yet there were heaps of desk frames just lying idle in schools.
 
 He said if schools could engage contractors to re-fix desk tops on the frames, the problem of shortage of desks in schools could be reduced.
Mr Chipungu said this after touring schools, hospitals and other government projects in Kabompo and Mufumbwe yesterday.
   

The Minister commended Loloma High School in Kabompo for engaging people to
reassemble desks and urged other schools in the province to emulate the initiative.
  
He nevertheless, assured that government was committed to ensure that desks
were purchased for schools countrywide, saying in this year’s budget government allocated substantial funds for the purchase of desks, construction and rehabilitation of schools.

In most schools the Minister inspected, teachers complained of shortage of desks as being one of the problems they were facing.

 Mr Chipungu however, said he was happy that there were some desks in schools
contrary to some reports that children were sitting on the floor.
