Former students of the Balaka Secondary School will this Saturday join current students in a general cleaning exercise of the School premises.
The event according to the interim president of the Balaka Secondary School Alumni, Zizwane Masanche is aimed at improving sanitation at the school and making sure that the environment is conducive for teaching and learning.
” We want to help in improving sanitation at the school premises especially the hostels. We feel that the school did a lot to us and that it is now our turn to do something for the school” said Masanche.
He added that the school has produced many students who are successful in life and that we feel we need to mobilise ourselves to make sure that the school continues to deliver its core function.
The Alumni leader further explained that the general cleaning is part of the activities that the BASESCO Alumni has lined up for this year apart from the introduction of awards for students and teaching staff.
According to Masache the Alumni has been engaging the management of the institution with the view to see how former students can help mobilise resources for some projects at the School.
The Alumni has also introduced a bursary programme for needy students at the school.
On Saturday, the Alumni will also join the students in the cafeteria for lunch before delivery of a motivational talk by an Alumni.
Balaka Secondary School Alumni was formed by former students last year with the aim of bringing together former students to interact, share ideas and help the school in mobilising resources for specific projects.
Balaka Secondary School is a public secondary School which started its operations in the early 70s.
