Mwera Vision secondary and English Medium primary schools will introduce computer classes early next year, the schools’ director, Mr Peter Mwera, has announced.
“We have already purchased sufficient computers to start computer classes for our primary and secondary school students next year,” Mwera revealed during a graduation ceremony for form four students recently. The schools are located a kilometre out of Tarime town in Mara Region.
The Tarime District Secondary Education Officer, Mr Bantaleon Ruiza, officiated during the graduation ceremony urging communities here to value girls’ education as it is the case with boys. “I call upon Tarime people to make sure that girls get educated. Girls too have the right to education like boys,” Ruiza told a huge gathering at the colourful event.
Ruiza commended Mwera, who is also the President of Save Children of Tanzania (SACHITA) and a prominent CCM councillor in Tarime, for establishing the schools in the district. Mwera Secondary School Headmaster, Mr Daniel Masanja said the school has been performing well in regional and national examinations.
A total of 338 students from the school have joined high schools and various colleges between 2007 and 2011, according to Masanja. For example, the school was ranked 5th out of 59 schools in a regional examination and 144 out of 1,452 schools in the national form four examinations held in 2007 and has been striving to maintain the good performance in recent years.
“All these positive success are due to effective strategies being put in place by the school management, hardwiring and the prevailing good disciple of our students,” he said in a speech. Masanja also predicted that the 2012 school candidates whose number stands at 65 of which 25 are girls and 40 boys will pass their national form four exams slated for early next month with flying colours.
The school is also constructing a modern library and laboratory in a bid to boost learning.
