The district has Luwingu Secondary School only, which is also a boarding school and several basic schools.

He said the Disaster Management and Mitigation Unit (DMMU) has spent a total sum of K180,000 to carry out the repairs at the school.
And the district is slated to have a community radio station to be called Lwansase and that the project will be funded by Irish Aid.
“Eighty percent of the works have already been completed and we are just waiting to receive the equipment for transmission,’’ Mr Chanda said.
He said the radio station, which has so far cost K750, 000, is in Lubansenshi Constituency.
Other projects that have so far been implemented in the district include the construction of a block of three classrooms, one staff house and a VIP latrine at Chanika Primary School at a cost of K420,000.
“The entire project at Chanika Primary School has been funded by the government of the Republic of Zambia,’’ he said.
