Construction of Rujeko Secondary School’s Seventh block gathers momentum
Despite inclement economic conditions that have characterized the country and councils not being spared, the City of Masvingo has managed to construct three (3) more blocks at Rujeko Secondary School at a budgeted cost of ZWL 93 874 665.
The school which opened doors on the 14th of February 2022 has two intakes so far with a staggering enrolment of 360 pupils for Form One and Two. Council has since embarked on construction of two more blocks in preparation for the 2024 enrolment of Form Ones. The Seventh block is a science lab which was funded by the school development committee.
Construction of Rujeko Secondary School is expected to go a long way in bridging a yawning infrastructure gap that was occasioned by the absence of a secondary school in the high-density suburb of Rujeko. Previously, the government owned secondary schools in Mucheke; Ndarama and Mucheke High Schools were catering for pupils in Rujeko which is the inspiration behind the construction of the secondary school with an envisaged capacity of 600 pupils.
