Ministry of Education, Science and Technology principal secretary Charles Msosa has said efforts by Likuni Boys Secondary School alumni will go a long way in improving quality education at the institution.
He was speaking during the handover ceremony of 91 desks worth K4.7 million to the institution and the unveiling plans for the school alumni.
Msosa said the support the alumni rendered to the institution will assist government to improve access to better education in the country.
According to Msosa, the donation of the desks will make the school a place where every parent would wish to send their child to for quality education.
“Let me thank all those from Likuni Boys Secondary School Alumni of the period between 1960 and 70s and well-wishers for contributing towards this donation. This is not only a donation to the school, but also a donation to Malawi government” he said.
In his remarks, Likuni Boys Secondary School deputy head boy Blessings Chazemba said the donation will help create a better learning environment for the students.
He urged all alumni of the school to consider painting the hostels, replace beds that have been damaged and chairs for the hall to carter for three quarters of the students whom he said sit on the floor during examination.
However, chairperson of the 1960s and 70s Likuni Boys Secondary School Alumni, Gautoni Kainja, urged the students to take good care of the desks so that they are in good condition. n
