Kitwe District Commissioner Binwell Mpundu early in March this year visited the school where he learnt that the school had a population of over 1,000 pupils against 16 desks and promised to lobby desks from the corporate world.
Mpundu has since lured Chinese Investors who have since donated 85 desks valued at K 40,000 to help improve learning standards for the school that caters for grade 1-9.
Speaking during the donation, Chinese Community in Zambia Vice Chairman Xin Wang said the donations came after learning that pupils were attending lessons while on the floor.
Wang said the gesture is of good will to support the growth of education standards in Zambia through the provision of supporting materials.
And school Head Teacher Moses Siwale has thanked the Chinese Community for the gesture further stating that the school population has reduced to 1080 against 10 desks.
Meanwhile, District Commissioner Binwell Mpundu said government will continue to invest in education.
He said his office will continue to lobby from the corporate world to ensure education standards are improved to motivate learners.
