PARENTS with children at Lobengula Primary School in Bulawayo on Wednesday, confronted the school administration demanding a refund for the money they paid as top-up fees for their children enrolled under the Basic Education Assistance Module (Beam) facility.

Beam is a government programme that provides school fees, examination fees and levies among other forms of assistance to marginalised and vulnerable children.

In their petition, parents listed a number of grievances that they want the school authorities to attend to.

Apart from the petition, parents also called for the suspension of the school headmistress, one Mudzudzu and her deputy a Nkomo.

Parents expressed their intention to escalate the issue to the Provincial Affairs and Devolution minister's office they had not received a satisfactory response from the district schools inspectorate (DSI) team.
