Harare (News of the South)- In a bid to reduce the acutely high teacher to pupil ratios in schools in Norton, incumbent Member of Parliament Temba Mliswa has donated over 30 000 bricks towards a schools expansion program.

 

The bricks have since been delivered to St Eric Primary School, Vimbai Primary and Secondary and Takunda Primary, which all got 5 000 first bricks.

 

Nicholas Bengu has received 10 000 bricks as it seeks to build more blocks for the pupils.

 

Some bricks have also been donated to Mutipitipi Primary for the building of tennis courts as part of sports development.

 

Acute shortages of classrooms has led to hot-seating in most Norton schools leading to poor performance by the pupils.

 

Other have resorted to learning outside sharing the few blocks available.

 

Speaking about the initiative Mliswa said education was fundamental for development.

 

“Education is important as it equips the child with the skills to navigate in life. It’s necessary that we do everything within our means to reduce the challenges being faced by these schools as this impacts on the children.”

 

“Real development is that which lasts lifetimes and investing on children is one such,” he said.
