BREAD maker Baker’s Inn has in­vested about $60 000 in the con­struc­tion of a sec­ondary school in Mbal­a­bala as part of its com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment pro­gramme.

Baker’s Inn chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Mr Ngoni Mazango said the con­struc­tion of the school was aimed at re­duc­ing long dis­tances some pupils were trav­el­ling to the near­est sec­ondary school in the area.

“Chil­dren were trav­el­ling more than 10 kilo­me­tres to the near­est school and we saw that there was a need to in­ter­vene. Dif­fer­ent part­ners joined to­gether to as­sist in the con­struc­tion of the school and we are glad to plough back to the com­mu­ni­ties we serve.

“We have in­vested about $60 000 in the con­struc­tion of the school. The Zim­babwe Na­tional Army ap­proached us after be­ing re­quested to as­sist by the com­mu­nity and we then part­nered them in build­ing the school,” said Mr Mazango.

He said the money in­vested was for build­ing two class­room blocks.

Mbal­a­bala Sec­ondary School is sit­u­ated a few me­tres from the Zim­babwe School of In­fantry.

Mr Mazango said they were tar­get­ing to com­mis­sion the school in Jan­uary next year.
