Tanzania: Govt Urged to Honour Best Grade Seven Pupils

THE government has been urged to announce ten best pupils, at national level, for primary school examinations in order to motivate them to study hard.

On December 21, 2012, the government announced final results for primary school examinations but it didn't announce ten best pupils in the exams for both national and regional levels.

The call was made by 17 best pupils all from Tusiime Primary School during a party to hail them at Tabata Segerea area in Ilala Municipality in Dar es Salaam over the weekend. Janet Kijazi, one of the best students, expressed her delight for her achievement and that the government should start announcing the best pupils in the exams to motivate those still at school to work hard.

"This will motivate the pupils knowing that the government recognizes them," she stated. Announcing the results at the end of last year, the Minister for Education and Vocational Training, Dr Shukuru Kawambwa, said the highest marks scored was 234 out of the required 250. Tusiime Primary School became top in the results for both the regional and district levels. According to the results, ten best female pupils came from the school.
