BOTHO UNIVERSITY ADOPTS KUBUNG PRIMARY SCHOOL
As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility, Botho University (BU) adopted Kubung Primary School on the 26th October 2017, in an effort to help improve the school’s academic results.
The BU Office of External Relations formed a partnership with the Ministry of Basic Education to assist the school, as guided by the Ministry adopt a School initiative. Kubung Primary School invited Botho University to a prize giving ceremony last year, during which BU identified the need for provision and monitoring of Standard 5 to 7 remedial lessons to help boost academic results.
Botho University engaged its own students to embark on a much-needed facelift for the primary school, including the design of a new logo unveiled at the prize giving ceremony, where the Kubung community applauded the University for their generous contribution.
Botho University will also support Kubung Primary school library through the provision of learning resources and the enhancement of learning spaces. One of the main activities will include re-aligning the revision content into an outcome-based syllabus for ease of students’ engagement, as well as the provision of computers and internet to enhance the learning environment.
The event was graced by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Basic Education Grace Muzila, who applauded the University for the wonderful initiative and encouraged the Kubung community to join hands with Botho University to ensure the improvement of students’ grades.
