New Ramaeba School To Enrol Over 400 Learners


A total of 414 leaners are expected to enrol for the first time in the next school term which commence on May 14 at the newly constructed Ramaeba Primary school in Kazungula.

The project is a donation from Peoples Republic of China at a cost of P 80, 77, 190.00.

The school will enrol 350 students from standard one up to five and 64 in the reception class for next two terms this year, around 10 teachers including the headmaster will be transferred to the school. All the two A-B classes from each standard will consist of 35 learners.

This was revealed by Chobe Acting Regional Education Officer Tetlanyo Chipendo in an interview with this publication during a tour of the school by Member of Parliament for Chobe Machana Shamukuni. According to Chipendo the school would admit learners from the regional primary schools that include Kazungula, Kasane, Plateau and Lesoma.

She stated that the teachers will also be transferred from the regional schools. Chipendo noted that they have decided to enrol students from standard one up to five and reception class because they still have more time before they settle for their PSLE.

For his part, Shamukuni appreciated the progress that has been made by China Aid Company in constructing such modern facilities that suits the 21st century learner. He stated that the school will provide a conducive learning environment for the learners as it is attractive, unique and well equipped.

Shamukuni noted that the school will also help alleviate congestion in other existing primary schools in the region. He also appreciated China Aid for delivering the project though they had some challenges that include delay in supply of materials that caused delay in completion of the project.

Meanwhile, the project for the construction of the new primary school in Kazungula village started on the 12th April 2021 and it was expected to be completed on the 30th December 2023 but it delayed due to different factors that include shortage of supply in building materials from China. The revised completion date for the project is now projected to be end of April 2024.

The Ramaeba Primary School consists of one office building, one canteen/ kitchen dining hall, one equipment room, three classroom blocks (14 classrooms), one toilet block, five blocks of teachers’ dormitories (15 housing units), two guard rooms, one football pitch, one basketball court and covered walk ways.
