ZIMUTO – Masvingo Provincial Education Director (PED) Zedias Chitiga has urged school heads to introduce Electronic Learning (E-Learning) in schools with immediate effect.
Chitiga made the remarks while addressing pupils at Zimuto High School during a Prize Giving Day last Saturday and said schools should move in times with the Information Technologies (ITs).
Chitiga said schools should encompass the new learning technology through introducing e-learning.
“Headmasters should introduce new learning methods in schools; pupils must learn computer studies right from form one to six and e-learning is very crucial to the development of pupils’ education these days.
“Pupils should benefit from e-learning and develop personal skills that will assist them even when they leave school,” said Chitiga.
Meanwhile, Dr Johannes Marisa who was the guest of honour at the prize giving donated laptops to best O’ Level pupil, Isheanesu Dube and three Best A’ Level students, Tapiwanashe Chitsika upper six arts, Prosper Shoshore upper six commercials and Tinodaishe Musingarambwi, upper six sciences.
Dr Marisa, who is a former Zimuto High student, also launched the Marisa Foundation that seeks to assist less privileged children by paying school fees and donate laptops to the school annually.
“I will continue to support my school and today l introduce Marisa Foundation which will donate laptops every year.
I want to urge other former students to also take a leaf and come in their numbers to assist our brothers and sisters at the school so that they can have a better future,” said Marisa.
Present at the ceremony were the Reformed Church in Zimbabwe education secretary Cabinos Magaya, District Education Director Zakariah Makopa, Chief Zimuto and headmasters from various schools.Local
