Kubung reaps from Adopt a School initiative

As a response to the Adopt a School initiative that was put in place by the Government of Botswana in 2013, the Chinese Embassy to Botswana decided to adopt Kubung Primary School in Boseja Ward Maun. In 2011 the Chinese Embassy built the primary school with good facilities to enhance children’s learning environment.

The Chinese Embassy recently invited different stakeholders to witness a handing over of a fully furnished computer lab in Kubung Primary School. During the handing over ceremony, Deputy Head of Mission for Chinese Embassy Mr. LI Nan, said due to the revolutionary changes in the world, where information technology is key, they found it fit to support the upcoming generation with equipment that will help keep up to pace with the world changes.

Mr. Nan explained that not only will they donate the computers but will also install internet so that they can also learn how to research and to keep up with the outer world through social media and other modern technologies.

“Due to the remarkable academic excellence that the school has displayed over the years we found it fit to enhance the children’s learning by providing the computer lab. He said that as China they will always be dedicated to rendering support to Botswana in education due to the good relations they have had with Botswana over the years.

When giving the school’s background, the Headmaster of Kubung Primary School Mrs. Esther Maokisa stated that since the establishment of the school in 2013, it had a PLSE pass rate of 77%, followed by 89% in 2014 and 74% in 2015. Mrs. Maokisa however says she believes with the introduction of the newly technology to the school, this will help bring out the best in the children and thus improve their results.

Member of Parliament for Maun East Hon. Kostantinos Markus appreciated the Chinese Embassy for their tireless efforts in aiding the delivery of the best education to Botswana, saying some projects including the building of the Kubung Primary School had to be deffered during the economic downturn but the Chinese Embassy came to their rescue by building and maintaining the primary school in Maun. He noted that even the donation of the computers, chairs and desks will help maintain and even improve the good results the school has had. He urged all those who will have access to the computer lab, teachers and children to take good care of the computer lab so that it can also be used by generations to come. Council Chairman for North West Distrcit Council Hon. Reaboka Mbulawa applauded the Chinese Embassy for the efforts in helping Botswana to develop and said the donations are a good start to improving the education of Botswana
