Challenges of classrooms have hit Msekera Secondary School in Chipata district.
This follows government’s decision to upgrade the school from a basic to a secondary school.
Parents Teacher Association PTA Chairperson Misheck Jere has appealed to parents to pay user fees so that the school can use some of the money to build a 1 by 3 classroom block.
In an interview with Breeze News, Mr. Jere says the school has challenges of classrooms for pupils from grades one to seven.
Mr. Jere says the school has asked parents to pay 100 kwacha for pupils who are in grade one up to seven while those in grade eight to twelve are supposed to pay 700 kwacha per year.
And Mr. Jere says that construction works on the lab at the school are about to be completed so that it can be operational.
The lab whose construction work started last year is being roofed after about 76 iron sheets were bought.
