Written by Skyz Metro FM on February 2, 2024
The government says Lower six students are slated to begin their classes on Monday next week.The government also urged parents and guardians to pay school fees that is proportional to the number of days which learners will attend classes.
Primary and Secondary Education Director of Communication and Advocacy Taungana Ndoro confirmed this development.
“We are reminding all prospective Form 5 learners that they are opening schools on Monday the 5th of February and to get ready to start the 2024 academic year”, Ndoro said.
Meanwhile Ndoro also advised teachers looking for employment not to pay recruitment fees saying government recruits workers for free.
“We urge teachers looking for recruitment not to be duped by unscrupulous elements within the community who are creating WhatsApp groups and charging them between USD$300 to USD$500 for them to be recruited. The Public Service Commission does not charge any money for teachers to be recruited”, Director Ndoro cautioned teachers.
All schools in Zimbabwe, whether they’re government-run, government-assisted, or private, must register with the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education and adhere to its regulations.
The government places a high priority on education, as it is seen as a critical investment in the country’s future and a key pillar of economic growth in achieving an upper- middle income society by 2030.
