Stay away from drugs, sex, pupils told

Empowering youths with knowledge on sexuality

ELIZABETH CHATUVELA, Mongu
WESTERN Province Minister Nathaniel Mubukwanu has urged pupils at Kambule Technical Secondary School in Mongu to stay away from drugs and sex if they are to record good results.
Mr Mubukwanu said the pupils should make their books a priority and help improve the examination results at national level.
He said both the learners and teachers should work hard to improve the province’s academic performance.
In last year’s examinations, Western Province came out 10th at Grade 12 and settled for the sixth position at grades Nine and Seven.
“Government is very concerned with the poor results in the education sector in the province and you have a duty to make us proud. Make books your best friends and avoid wasting your time watching Telemundo and ZeeWorld.
“Also, avoid drugs and early sex as this will result in pregnancies and contracting diseases,” Mr Mubukwanu said.
He said this when he addressed a Grade 12 class at Kambule Technical Secondary School recently.
Mr Mubukwanu said the school, which received a donation of a power generator and four electric pots from President Lungu last year, should strive to record good results.
He said the school was privileged to have received such a donation, and should therefore, make the President proud.
And speaking when he addressed Mongu-based primary school head teachers, who had gathered at Kambule for a one-day academic review workshop, Mr Mubukwanu said he would not accept bad results in the 2017 examinations.
Mr Mubukwanu said head teachers should start monitoring their teachers to ensure that they drew up teaching plans for the pupils and avoided absconding from work.
