China hands over state of the art school to Lesotho Govt
20 January 2017

China has handed over a state-of-the-art high school that it built in the Kingdom of Lesotho.

The school is the first of its kind in the country. It has computer and science laboratories, and high end sporting facilities.

It will accommodate 560 pupils.

The country's Prime Minister Pakalitha Mosilili is impressed.

"We've witnessed the People’s Republic of China making concerted efforts to support Africa’s development agenda by mobilising the necessary resources for the implementation of various development programmes in Africa. In the specific case of Lesotho, the project we are receiving today attests to our conviction that investment in education is the best strategy to realise meaningful development of our country and her people."

In a world that has become a global village, it is imperative that learners leave high school with information technology skills and this looks like the way to do it.

“The French writer Hugo once said building a school is equal to demolishing a prison. Schools are where young people equip themselves with knowledge, values. We have seen that Lesotho has the highest budget allocation for education and it’s important to this country,” China ambassador to Lesotho, Sun Xiangua said.

Sadly, three computers have already been stolen .

The Education Minister is appealing to the community to safeguard the school.

Many pupils in Lesotho only get to do science experiments at university, as many high schools don't have science laboratories, but now things are different.

In the past, China has donated the country's parliament, a State Library and a Convention Centre and the Prime Minister's Residence among other facilities..
