Minister of General Education, Dennis Wanchinga says government will upgrade 220 more basic schools into full secondary institutions of learning.

This is in addition to the 220 basic schools which have already been upgraded to secondary level.

Dr. Wanchinga says government has decided that it will be upgrading basic schools into full secondary level because of the encouraging 2017 examination results from those that were recently elevated.

He was speaking yesterday at Ndubulula Primary School in Rufunsa district when he and Vice President Inonge Wina met teachers before the latter launched the 2017/2018 national tree planting season.

He disclosed that upgraded schools performed well and in some instances better than those that were created as full secondary schools.

Dr. Wanchinga has since revealed that Ndubulula Primary School is among the 220 schools that will be upgraded into a full secondary schools.

The Minister stated that government will build more basic structures to accommodate secondary school pupils at Ndubulula Primary School.

Earlier, Ndubulula Primary School Head Teacher, Isaac Kaweni said the institution was facing challenges of accommodation for teachers.

  1. Help us to find out when the ministry continues upgrading schools but failing to create payroll/establishment for administrators. Most of the upgraded schools don’t pay administrators because of treasury authority. One example among these schools is kafulafuta secondary school in masaiti copperbelt. For almost 10 years now since it was upgraded there is no vacancies for administrators example no head of department is confirmed because of the some story of treasury authority. Look into this issue twapapata. We have been acting for years and we all have degrees in related fields awe twafweni.

  2. Please first confirm people who have been acting in the already upgraded secondary schools by creating permic vacancies. People have been acting for close to 4 years without being confirmed in the subsequently created positions.

  4. How can you upgrade when you can not maintain the current secondary schools…why are you quick to build, we know you want to steal cement from contracts you will hand to yourselves. If you fail to maintain UNZA and CBU…you leave in such disrepair to point where you close.
    This is a clear sign of a visionless govt headed by an equally visionless Lazy Lungu!!
