The Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe, ARTUZ, has learnt with sorrow the injury of two learners at Darangwa Primary School in Murewa District as the classroom block was swept off the roof this Tuesday afternoon.
The two are currently admitted at Musami Hospital and one of the two is battling for life. The source revealed that the stormy wind violently moved towards the exposed rural school, sweeping off all the front asbestos resulting in the fatalities in the unfortunate incident.
ARTUZ believes in the Safe Learning Institutions Initiative (SLII) model which emphasis the provisions of hazard-free learning facilities.
No one should be hurt in the school premises. We don’t expect a further loss of life or fatalities in schools as they are our dear workplaces and nurture homes. Schools should also be made adaptive to the climatic change patterns.
We wish the learners a speedy recovery and resume learning the prior forthcoming end of year examinations. We also sympathise with the families and the school.
