Linga Primary School gets a makeover
Linga Primary School near the lakeshore at Nkhotakota has around 2,100 boys and girls, 8 school blocks, 22 teachers and 7 teachers’ houses. Refurbishment has been funded by the Diocese of Birmingham and MACS has supervised the work on two dilapidated houses. Here is the latest newly refurbished house looking beautiful and the delighted headmaster and members of the school committee.
Teachers are naturally reluctant to come to such a place where they cannot create a comfortable home. Many have to pay high prices to rent a small house. Some have to walk or cycle up to ten kilometres to get to school.
At Linga there remain five houses in desperate need of refurbishment.
