In a bid to create a conducive environment for learning to Thandazga Primary School Pupils, a final year student of Environmental Health at The Malawi Polytechnic—Towera Ngwira, awarded the best three performing learners at the school in each class.

The awarding ceremony took place on Friday, April 12, 2019. The ceremony was part of Extra Mile Development Foundation (EMDEF) project which they organised at the school on February 6, 2019. 

EMDEF Team which Ngwira is a co-founder organised a writing competition to standard eight learners at the school with the aim of boosting their academic performances and motivating them.

The best three students received among others, gift bags, soft drinks, soap, face towels, toothpastes, toothbrushes, snacks, pens, pencils, notebooks, lotion, mathematical instrument sets and rulers.

Ngwira said they recognised best performers in each class at the school in order to establish a hardworking spirit in them.

“Though as a team we had a little to offer to these extraordinary performers at this school. We believe what we have offered to them will help to improve their academic performance and will also motivate other learners to work hard next term,” she said.

A Standard-Eight class teacher, Gift Chimaliro, hailed the team for a good initiative as it has encouraged the learners to work extra hard in class and strive for better results.

Chimaliro further said the motivational program will also reduce learners’ absenteeism at Thandazga as it a major challenge.

One of the awardees, Annie Harawa, who is in Standard-Eight said she felt proud of herself to receive an award because of her good performance in class.

“I am motivated to see my fellow girls be at University especially at The Malawi Polytechnic. This has encouraged me to work extra hard in my studies so that one day I should be at one of the Universities pursuing one of the programs that  are being offered in the country, “Harawa explained.
