Government will continue implementing strategies to improve education – Mwenya 



WHILE most pupils only dream of going to a national park within the country as a source of adventure, Lusaka’s Rhodes Park School took a step further by taking its some of their pupils to South Africa on an education tour.


Zambia’s acting High Commissioner to South Africa Inonge Mwenya said Initiatives like educational tours are very important to the growth and well-being of pupils.


“Through such undertakings, children are psyched and motivated to work hard in school so they realise their dreams,” Mwenya said as the school stuff and pupils paid a courtesy call at the High Commission in Pretoria.


She was impressed by Rhodes Park School for maintaining a high quality standard of education.


“Taking pupils on an educational tour to South Africa provided exposure for the children to aspire to achieve their dreams and be the best they can be.” Mwenya disclosed in a statement issued by Tamara Nyirenda, the first secretary for press and public relations at Zambia’s High Commission in South Africa.


Meanwhile, Mwenya said the government will continue implementing strategies aimed at improving the education sector, with the intention of serving individual, social and economic well-being, and to enhance the quality of education for all.


“Government has put education among top priorities and this is why today, our children in public schools are learning for free from Grade 1 to 12 because President Hakainde Hichilema believes one of the ways to eradicate poverty is by building a nation with educated citizens,” she said.


Mwenya said the government wants children, in both private and public schools, to attain the best education and that for that reason, free education was developed to give all a chance to basic education regardless of their family background.


Rhodes Park School headteacher Fionulalalia Siabwanta said the educational tour was aimed at broadening the children’s scope of understanding in various issues such as learning other people’s social and cultural environments.


Siabwanta said the trip to South Africa gave pupils an opportunity to see for themselves, geographical features in other parts of the sub-African region and experience the difference in climatic conditions, see tourism components like wildlife as well as people’s welfare.
