Ororo Primary School Closed Over Mismanagement

A primary school in the nation’s capital has been shut down by the NCD Education Department, following an environment and sanitation report from the National Capital District Commission.

The shutting down of the school has left over 700 students at home.


Ororo Primary School in Tokarara, NCD, is facing major difficulties, following a report from the National Capital District Commission to shut down the school.


The report, initiated by the Tokarara Health Clinic last month, revealed that the school’s sanitation and waste management facilities were in a bad condition and unhealthy for the student population.  


Following this report, the school’s administration is also in further turmoil, with a large sum of money confirmed to be misused by former administration members who have gone into hiding.


This has forced an interim board to take charge of the current situation. They have been tasked to reopen the school before the national exams.  


Interim Board Chairman, Philip Vaki, announced today that the school is in need of assistance and has called on the government to look into this issue.


Parent representative, Ben Mek, expressed great concern over the current facilities of the school, saying the classrooms, ablution blocks and teacher’s aids are not suitable for student learning.


Moreover, the school’s interim board held a meeting with parents today, discussing options to help reopen the school.
