School heads urged to push innovation-based curriculum

Story by Courage Bushe

PRIMARY school heads from Zvishavane and Runde districts have been implored to take the competence-based curriculum seriously for the benefit of learners as the nation drives towards achieving an upper-middle-income society by 2030.

Promotion of a reading culture and taking seriously the competence-based curriculum so as to improve the district’s grade seven pass rate were topical this Saturday when government officials, legislators and school heads converged in Zvishavane.

Speaking on the sidelines of the workshop, Zvishavane District Education Officer, Mr Luke Matutu noted that the engagement gave the school heads a platform to interact and exchange notes and information on how to improve learning standards in the district.

“We are happy to have such a noble initiative because it gave us an opportunity to interact and exchange ideas. What we want is to improve the pass rate and push an innovation-based curriculum. So after this workshop, we are confident that we will surpass the 53.2% pass rate we achieved last year,” he said.

After handing over a consignment of books to various primary schools in the district, Zvishavane-Runde legislator Honourable Freddy Moyo reiterated that the donation would play a vital role in improving the reading culture among students.

“We have an idea and dream of having community libraries and ICT centres so that we bridge the gap between rural and urban learners. I am confident that the donation will help learners to improve their reading culture. This is in line with the aspirations of the National Development Strategy One,” he said.

Meanwhile, teachers from rural institutions have been implored to be technically advanced in order to bridge the learning gap between rural and urban learners.
