Masvingo Provincial Education Director (PED) Zedius Chitiga has advised teachers and pupils to polish up their work in preparation for the upcoming examinations as schools open for the final 2019 term.
Chitaga said he expected pupils and teachers to work hard in the third term in order to achieve results that exceed last year’s performance.
“As schools open for the final term, I encourage school teachers and pupils to work very hard so as to achieve the best results. We want our province to produce better results.
“Writing classes that include grade 7, form 4 and form 6 pupils should be fully-prepared for their final examinations, and teachers with examination classes should polish up their work in preparation,” said Chitiga.
He said learning should start on the opening day and urged teachers to take their work seriously.
Chitiga also encouraged pupils who are not sitting for exams this year to study hard and not relax so that they will be more prepared when their own time comes.
He encouraged parents to support their children by paying the agreed fees in time, saying those who face challenges raising the fees in time should negotiate with school authorities for payment plans.
