Bad start for Sanga Primary School
Following a trail of destruction by Cyclone Idai, Sanga Primary School treasurer fears that children will be disturbed in their studies as the new school term begins.
The satellite school which is situated in Buhera is facing challenges of rebuilding the destroyed block and toilets.
The School Development Committee treasurer, Ignatius Mukono said they were in a difficult situation as they have to provide necessities for the children.
“We are in a difficult situation now that schools have opened and we have not managed to build the destroyed block and toilet.
“It is a satellite school which is built by parents and now they too are recovering from the destruction,” said Mukono.
Mukono said they attempted to raise funds but the efforts were not fruitful.
“In an attempt to raise funds and materials to rebuild the destroyed buildings, we did fundraising on April 25 but it did not come out as we had planned.
“There was a low turn up of stakeholders who promised to help to lead to low outputs from the fundraising.
“The community only came and did some donations but they are too little for the rebuilding,” he said.
Mukono said they wanted to re-build a classroom block and a 10 squatting hole toilet that was destroyed during the floods.
“The destructions by Cyclone Idai has left us in a difficult situation as we are now left with no choice than to share the remaining six holes between the girls and boys.
“Children are sharing the remaining blocks as there are few buildings and we cannot make any class learn from outside this winter,” he said.
“We would want to organise another fundraising exercise and on this one we would like to engage the councillor and the Member of Parliament so that we will be able to come up with something for the re-building of the school.”
