back to school 10-01-11.jpgMost school uniform selling outlets in the capital were operating this Sunday as parents and guardians made last day shopping for their school bound children.

It is back to school and as what has become the norm, form one students were seen in the capital waiting for transport to ferry them to their respective schools.

In Harare’s CBD, school uniform selling shops were open despite it being a Sunday.

Shop owners said they were recording brisk business.

Parents who spoke to ZBC News said this year’s back to school preparations were better than the past few years as uniforms are not very expensive.

Meanwhile, Deputy Minister of Education, Sport, Arts and Culture, Cde Lazarus Dokora has called upon private colleges to formalise their operations by developing their facilities for them to be awarded examination centre status.

Private colleges have sprouted over the years with some using sub-standard facilities such as churches, residential houses and community halls as classrooms.
