Premier mobile network and ICT service provider TNM has refurbished Soche Hill Secondary School in Blantyre to the tune of K3 million to help improve the school’s learning environment.
The refurbishments have seen the school’s hall, library, kitchen and classroom blocks wearing a refreshing new coat of paint.
Speaking during the handover of the project, TNM’s Head of Blantyre region David Nyirenda said as a responsible corporate citizen, TNM remains committed to government efforts to improve education standards in the country.
“We provided about K3 million for painting some of buildings to help provide conducive environment for the delivery of classes at the school. As Malawian company, TNM always thinks of making sure that we are relevant to people and our assistance are designed to support the community,” said Nyirenda.
Nyirenda said the painting project was also in line with TNM’s continued support towards the education sector as it believes education is a backbone of country’s economic growth.
“This is TNM’S contribution to the growth of the country’s education sector because we believe that education is a catalyst for economic growth of this country where we do our business,” he said.
Head teacher for the school Agness Mussa hailed TNM for the projects saying it has created good atmosphere for the students.
“I would like to commend TNM for this project which has changed the outlook of the school. Education is not only having learning and teaching materials but also requires good learning environment to attract students,” said Mussa.
Parents and Teachers Association (PTA) Secretary Patricia Sumani called on students to say thanks to TNM by taking good care of the painted blocks.
Soche Hill Secondary school was opened in 1964 and currently it has enrolment of over 600 students.
Meanwhile, TNM has commissioned the tower near the school that provides reliable network at the school and surrounding areas.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
