He said the school was just given half hectare of land by the Bulawayo city council to practise agriculture, poultry and cuniculture.

"We want pupils who obtain their education in this school when they finish to be able to live their own life and independent even in the presence of their parents," he said.

"Our children must be able technology elite and know what factories are when they finish their education in this school."

Mathema emphasized on the need for the school to become a centre of business and relate to the economy of the country including Lobengula Primary School.
