Press Trust on Wednesday handed over K75 million worth of two classroom blocks, an office block and 120 desks to Namaso Bay Primary School in Traditional Authority Nankumba in Mangochi.
The organisation said this will enhance quality education among learners at the school.
Speaking during the function, one of the Press trustees Moses Maliro said they have helped to change the face of the school.
He said the new structures are essential to both learners and teachers because their lives were at risk.
“Press Trust has done this to create a conducive learning environment among the learners and of course the teachers,” said Maliro.
The area’s legislator Ralph Jooma thanked Press Trust for the development, saying it would solve many challenges for both learners and teachers at the school.
“This is a good development. Now we will have a good learning environment for both learners and teachers because for the past years we were putting ourselves in a death trap,” he said, while urging Press Trust to do more in the area.
In her remarks, the school’s head teacher Isabel Msiska said the new infrastructure and furniture will tremendously improve school enrolment from the current 405 and Standard Eight’s pass rate, which stands at 91 percent.
