Primary and Secondary Education Minister Lazarus Dokora has come up with a noble idea for once proposing that schools affected by floods countrywide could apply for vacation school to compensate for time lost due to floods during the term.
The Government has also said other affected schools in the country can apply to conduct the vacation lessons.
Tsholotsho District was severely affected by floods that displaced more than 1 000 people.
"Each and every district has different ways of compensating for time lost due to the floods. It's standard that any school that has lost time due to one reason or another can apply to the ministry for vacation school," Dokora told state media.
Matabeleland North provincial education director Boithatelo Mnguni said the province was organising free holiday lessons for the affected children.
"Some children have been cut off from their schools but have access to others. We have therefore agreed that school heads should accept children from other schools. All they have to do is report to my office so that we keep record and track other absent children.
"We are also liaising with the traditional leadership to assist us with tracking children that are not attending school,"Mnguni is also quoted saying.
