A message from Headmistress Ezeliya Martha Phiri
Dear Supporters,
We have started the year on a very positive note despite our opening being delayed due to Covid 19 cases. 
We were supposed to open on 18th January but this was re scheduled to 1st February 2021.
It was a very exciting day both to teachers and learners.
We held our first staff meeting on the same day, where we drew up plans for the whole year. During this time the Learners were kept busy cleaning the surroundings with lessons in the later hours of the day for all the school up to grade six,  they have three learning hours while grade sevens were allocated longer time to prepare them for the final examinations!
Teachers have been taught to follow Covid 19 health guidelines. Learners are also able to follow these health guidelines to avoid  contracting this deadly virus. 
Coming to our motto, ” Keeping Malimba Green”, learners have continued to plant trees and maintain their lawns. This has come to stay and learners enjoy that! We even changed the uniform from Blue to Green see our photos below!








I thank you all for your assistance and more especially Tribal Textiles who has encouraged us to work extremely hard for the betterment of the learners at large! Thanks to Kirstie for the provision of teaching and learning materials as well as Covid 19 materials.


Hoping this message finds you safe and well and making it through these challenging times.

Jacqui & the Team at Make Me Smile
