Kasungu, December 10, 2018: Former students of Chiphaso Community Day Secondary School in Kasungu at the close of the week donated various school materials to their previous secondary school.

The group donated 32 plastic chairs and plastic buckets, among other items.

In his remarks, Chiphaso Alumni Association Chairperson, Yollam Jere said as former students, they decided to reunite through a WhatsApp forum, where they agreed to start helping out their old school.

"We made the decision of reuniting via WhatsApp earlier last year, where we all had one vision of reaching our former secondary school and helping out with something which the school lacks most.

“And here we are today with a few things that we managed to buy and donate," he said.

The group's secretary, Salajina Sakala said their first visit after years was exciting and had given them a chance to appreciate other challenges faced by the school which they believe they can also help in.

"Through this visit, we have also explored that the school needs much assistant, for example, we have noticed that the school has over 30 needy students who need assistance for them to continue with their education.

“This is something that we have discussed and want to see the way forward and we believe that we will help," she said.

Commenting on the donation, the school's Head teacher, Andrew Debwe, commended the group for the initiative, saying it is the only way that can ensure that the school develops faster.

"We are very thankful as a school that our former students have decided to donate some materials and also to start helping. This is the only way we can develop our school faster," he said.

According to the 11- member group, they used funds from personal contributions to buy the donated items.
