Church run school on the verge of closure, after failing to attract pupils

Kusileni Secondary School,  a Catholic rub boarding school in Matebeleland South is on the verge of closure after failing to attract pupils.  Local students cannot afford the fees being charged by the school.  The school is reported to have good boarding facilities but is located deep in the rural areas, making it expensive for the locals.

Matabeleland South Provincial Education Director Mrs Tumisang Thabela said:

The school is located too deep in the rural areas, yet it’s a boarding school. Local parents do not want a school that is expensive so that explains why it fails to attract learners

The school was viable before independence but after independence the Government constructed other schools in the area. That seems to be affecting it in terms of day scholar population.
