Magwero School for the deaf and blind is not on the list of schools to be rehabilitated next year in Chipata district.

Magwero School for the deaf and blind in Chipata has been left out of next year’s implementation plan for the construction of school projects in the District.
Provincial Education Officer, Thomas Mwanza told Breeze News that the school does not appear in the implementation plan of the rehabilitation and construction of schools for the period 2012/2013.
This means that the school, which has been in a deplorable state for a long time, will not be rehabilitated soon.
Mr. Mwanza, however, says that government remains committed to the pronouncement that was made by former president, Rupiah Banda that the school should be rehabilitated.
He says that the issue was also raised in Parliament by Chipata Central Member of parliament, Reuben Mtolo Phiri who wanted to find out when the school will be worked on.
Mr. Mwanza says that the school has continued to receive grants from government according to the enrolled number of pupils.
Magwero School for the Blind and Deaf was constructed by the Dutch Reformed Church in the late 1840s as a Primary School and since then, the school has not been upgraded despite it being a Secondary school now.
Head Teacher of the School of the Deaf, Sara Dipa had indicated that only a one by three classroom block was constructed with the help of PTA, the Parents Teachers Association.
