A United Kingdom based Malawian, Thandie Hara, has awarded three top Mzimba Secondary School girl students for their outstanding class performance.
Hara is an alumnus and a member of the Mzimba Secondary School Alumni Association (MSSAA) started in the year 2010.
Presenting a cheque of MK15,000 to the three girls, MSSAA treasurer Beatrice Singini-Butao advised the girls to keep their future dreams alive.
“Work hard and be able to also do something for the school when you achieve your goals. Education is vital and this school should be assisted at all times so as to nurture more educated future leaders for the benefit of Mzimba and Malawi as a whole,” she advised.
The girls, Ella Banda, who wants to study medicine, Lucia Sibale and Leah Bola who both dream of pursuing careers as agricultural scientists, will split the money for their basic school needs.
Receiving the cheque before fellow students, the three thanked MSSAA and Hara in particular, who has since promised to award top performing students every school term in what she calls the Iness Hara Awards.
Banda is good in sciences and mathematics.
The school administration led by head teacher Mr. Kumwenda expressed gratitude and asked others to also consider top performing male students so as to motivate all students. He also advised the
recipients to continue working hard.
“In future it will be you assisting students then. You can only do this if you work extra harder,” he said.
The award has moved the deputy school head, also the school’s alumnus, to promise to do something as well every school term for top performing students in Form One at the school starting from next term.
Working at the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry – University of Exeter, Hara expressed excitement at seeing the photos of the awardees.
“Aw, it’s a pleasure, those uniforms! Reminds me of my days….” she exclaimed.
The three girls said they were thankful and promised to work extra harder to maintain top positions and achieve their future dreams.
MSSAA, which donated a million Kwacha cheque to the school in 2010, has so far bought banked twenty-four beds enough to carter for forty-eight students out of the six.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
