MacLaren Christian School Principal Eunice Nachilima said her school will continue to meet the basic requirements of an educational institution for the betterment of learners.
Ms Nachilima said learners deserve to learn in a safe and dignified environment in order to excel.
She said a school should be supportive of learners to encourage them not to abstain from class.
Ms Nachilima said so on Monday when Chililabombwe District Education Standards Officers Joakim Mulenga and Ernest Mukonko paid a courtesy visit during street checks.
She said her school will strive to maintain the standard which has seen them held in high regard by the residents of Chililabombwe.
“Schools need to be safe for children so they are encouraged to come to class every day. This is why at MacLaren School we provide a conducive, safe and dignified learning environment for all learners,” she said.
Mr. Mulenga commended the school not only for its contribution in providing educational services but also for creating jobs for the locals.
“We appreciate their services and that’s why we thought of giving them exam status, that’s why this year all students will take their exams right here,” he said.
And Ernest Mukonko said MacLaren is among the renowned private schools in the border town founded on the fundamentals of equipping learners with the necessary beginnings.
Initially, the school started as a reception for the baby class, but has now grown to the point of introducing even seventh grade classes following a decision by the Ministry of Education to give them a number of center.
The ministry gave center number status to the school this year.
In order to achieve its goal of ensuring that students learn in a supportive environment, the school has retained the services of friendly teachers.
The availability of friendly teachers made it easy for children to continue to assess a quality education.
