Pupils at Magwero School for the Blind appeal to government to reduce school fees.

Pupils at Magwero School for the Blind have asked government to consider reducing school fees which they have described as high.

Michael Chilando and Castro Banda say that the 828 Kwacha per term for pupils in secondary and 750 Kwacha for those in primary should be reduced.

The two pupils emphasized that government should consider reducing the user fees because their parents are struggling to raise the money.

The duo says government should also provide the school with programmed computers and brail embossers which transforms main print from brail to ink print.

Meanwhile Michael and Castro say that the school does not have sufficient working staff such as caregivers, office orderlies and cooks.

They further expressed concern that buildings at the school are in a dilapidated state.
