LUANIUA Early Childhood Education ECE has been closed down due to poor learning facilities.
This has been the reason behind an increased number of children not accessing education, as well as lack of grooming children to venture into primary level of education.
Head teacher of Luaniua School Luke Kikonga shared this insight with the paper during a recent interview.
Kikonga said this current situation the primary school is facing is due to misuse of allocated funds received from school grants.
He said due to this matter the school is currently without a proper learning facility, which is still left unconsidered and unanswered.
“Hence this has contributed to the poor academic performance of our students who entered primary level because they haven’t been groomed,” said Kikonga.
He adds this situation also has already affect children’s development directly through their emotional, social and physical developments stages.
Kikonga emotionally said as a new head teacher who took up this position three months ago he is shocked to witness this matter, hence he urges responsible authorities and their leaders to step in and address it.
“Because what matters is the future our children as they are the leaders for tomorrow.”
