MPOPOMA High School, one of the best secondary schools in Bulawayo, will on 7 May hold a fundraising dinner dance to raise funds for the expansion of the school.

The school, established in 1959, which has been the beacon of success in the region, says it seeks to raise money to fund a number of projects such as computerisation of the library, construction of A-level double-storey block, construction of an administration block, refurbishment of laboratories, purchase of a generator, drilling of borehole and purchasing of a mini-bus. The school is selling tickets for $25 to individuals and organisations, with low rates for those buying tables to accommodate 10 people.

In an interview with Sunday News, the school head, Christopher Dube, appealed to parents, the business community and former students to support the initiative.

"The purpose of the function is to seek for donations and raise funds for the development of the school. When the school was built, it was meant to accommodate 300 pupils with just 20 teachers but numbers have ballooned yet infrastructure has remained like that. Now we have more than 2 000 pupils and 104 teachers," said Dube.
