BU­L­AWAYO, Satur­day, Septem­ber 29, 1991 — The head­mas­ter of Nku­lumane High School, Cde Ash­ton Mguni, has ap­pealed to Gov­ern­ment to as­sist his school’s Par­ents Teach­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion in its ef­forts to build a lab­o­ra­tory and an ad­min­is­tra­tion block.

Cde Mguni was speak­ing at the school’s open day yes­ter­day. He said the PTA also needed as­sis­tance in pro­vid­ing chairs.

The PTA had hoped that the lab­o­ra­tory would be com­mis­sioned this year but this had not been pos­si­ble be­cause the par­ents could not raise more than $190 000 re­quired to build and equip the lab­o­ra­tory. The par­ents have raised only $60 000 so far, said Cde Mguni.

‘’I there­fore, on be­half of the PTA, ap­peal to the Min­istries of Ed­u­ca­tion and Cul­ture and Na­tional Hous­ing and Pub­lic Con­struc­tion to help in the ef­forts to raise funds for the build­ing of the lab­o­ra­tory and an ad­min­is­tra­tion block and also to ac­quire about 120 chairs for stu­dents,’’ said Cde Mguni.

The head­mas­ter said thieves had stolen prop­erty worth more than $10 000 from the school since the be­gin­ning of the year.

The guest of hon­our at the open day was the Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment for Nku­lumane, who is also the deputy Min­is­ter for Home Af­fairs, Cde Du­miso Dabengwa.

Cde Dabengwa urged the stu­dents to work hard so that they could qual­ify for ad­mis­sion to univer­sity.

He do­nated a cheque for $200 to the PTA.
