Kaseye Girls Secondary School (Chitipa) Parents Teachers Association (PTA) has donated personal protective equipment (PPE) and other laboratory apparatus to the school.
The donation, worth about K2 million, was part of celebrating the school’s 2020 Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) results.
Speaking on Monday during the handover, Kaseye Girls PTA vice-chairperson Innocent Phiri said they wanted to motivate teachers to work hard.
“The donation is in response to the school’s concerns that it needed some laboratory apparatus and PPE,” he said.
Karonga Diocese education officer Ramie Kamanga thanked the PTA for the donation.
“We are also trying our best to provide learning materials to our schools,” he said.
Traditional Authority Mwaulambia said parents have a big role to play in improving the performance of students in schools.
“We have formulated by-laws to ensure that our children, especially girls, are not married before finishing school,” he said.
Kaseye Girls Secondary School head teacher Sister Clementine Phiri said out of 81 students who sat for the 2020 MSCE examinations, 76 passed, with the top student scoring 12 points.
The items included soap, hand sanitisers, face masks, gloves, and laboratory equipment such as microscopes, ammeters, bunsen-burners, double-pullers, centrifuge system and rheostat.
