Ngabu Secondary School alumni on Saturday donated to the school assorted items worth K2 million.
Ngabu Secondary School Alumni Association vice-chairperson Louis Nyongopa said they visited the school to assess its needs.
“We have seen that there are some hostels with no beds, some of the pots in the kitchen are not working and some classes have no desks.
“We will try to find ways to help the school,” he said.
Ngabu Secondary School head teacher MacShades Dakamau commended the alumni for the gesture.
“We are extremely happy that today we have seen former and incumbent learners of the school coming together.
“We are thankful for the items they have donated to the school and the learners,” he said.
Traditional Authority Mbenje of Nsanje, who is also a senior member of Ngabu Secondary School Alumni Association, encouraged alumni of other schools to emulate the example by helping their former schools.
“Government alone cannot meet the needs of all schools in the country. That is why former students need to take a role in helping their schools,” he said.
The donation included 100 chairs, gifts for students, bags of maize and rice.
