Singida — THE Singida District Commissioner (DC), Ms Queen Mlozi, has urged all secondary school teachers in the district to be creative and innovative in looking for funds that will enable them construct laboratories in their respective areas.
The call was made early this week when the DC had an audience with Mitunduruni Secondary School Committee in Singida Municipality during the commencement of her week-long tour of various schools in the district.
She noted that the absence of labs in various secondary schools had for quite a long time been blamed for failing of science subjects by students and that their presence in schools would improve the academic performance for students.
The DC remarked that as of now, it was not easy for the government to provide all the necessary amenities and facilities to the growing number of our schools, as such, it was of paramount importance for the public and other stakeholders to give a helping hand to the government.
She said secondary school teachers were expected to know the situation better and had the duty to strive in making sure their respective schools had a laboratory as early as possible. "If each and every one of you knows his/her role, then involve the people around your school and if possible approach various stakeholders to help you in your endeavours," the DC said.
The DC further called upon all teachers in the area to abstain from the habit of staying dormant in their offices, instead, they should be active looking for funds from various donors or any other financial institutions in order to provide their students with the necessary facilities.
