Central region chapter of Chaminade Secondary School Alumni have donated 50 desks worth K3.7 million to their previous school as one way of easing challenges the school is facing.
Speaking in an interview on Monday after presenting the desks, Chairperson for the chapter, Major General Chikunkha Soko who is currently working with Malawi Defence Force (MDF) said they decided to make the donation to replenish some desks which have out lived their life span.
“Some of our colleagues came here last year and observed that a lot of facilities need maintenance and in some cases, some need replacement, which is why we thought of coming up with this maintenance and I
call on those who went through the corridors of Chaminade Secondary School to join hands in assisting and solving some of the challenges that the school is currently facing ,” said goko.
Chaminade Secondary School Head-teacher, Island Mtambo thanked the alumni for the donation saying it will ease some of the challenges students were facing in classrooms as the School is trying on our own to renovate some of the infrastructure using school fund, but it is not enough. “We are therefore appealing to well-wishers to assist us in renovating some structures,” said Mtambo.
Chaminade Secondary School was opened by Marianists Brothers in 1962 and since then the school has been expanding with a current intake of students per class pegged at 120.
