Pakati Primary – back to school!

Grade 4 learners back at Pakati Primary

This week saw schools re-open on Tuesday across Zimbabwe. Pakati Primary school Head Mr Mahachi sent me a number of photos from the first few days of the new term. This is the first term of the school year in Zimbabwe.

Students around the school….

The computer room is yet to be used this term as it has been used for secure storage of school stationery
Once everything is distributed then the room will be used for computer lessons

Many thanks to Mr Mahachi for organising the photos! We look forward to hearing more about progress at the school this term.
