– In the first ever such, 17 students from Mabvuku High School in Harare have arrived in Zaka for a cultural exchange programme with students from Zaka High School in Zaka.
The programme which is intended to see urban based students experiencing culture in the rural area including experiencing the day in a life of a rural school scholar will run for four days.
Zaka High School head, Richard Chinganda confirmed the visit in an interview with The Mirror.
He said that students from Zaka will in turn visit Mabvuku in September this year where they will also experience the urban environment both as scholars and also for cultural purposes.
Mabvuku head, Josiah Mbirimi said the aim of exchanging visits is to shape children in terms of culture.
The students from Mabvuku arrived at Zaka High on Tuesday this week and they will return to Harare on Friday.
"Children from Mabvuku High will travel to Zaka High for the purpose of exchanging cultural values and experiences in different learning environments, it is a programme of raising the cultural heritage, urban children interacting with rural children," said Chinganda.
The exchange programme is the idea of Mabvuku high School teacher Thabani Thuli who is also the district's arts and culture chairperson.
The students who will be accommodated at the school for the duration of their stay will attend morning lessons together with pupils from Zaka and the afternoons will be left for visits into the rural community.
"We have lined up visits for students to places of interest including going to see the local black smiths and sacred caves in the area where they will be led by traditional leaders.
"Our district education officer Mahofa James and provincial education officer Zedias Chitiga are impressed by this programme which promotes cultural exposure to our own pupils particularly those who live in the urban area.
"Students could have gone to Netherlands, America or China for such an exchange programme but we realised that there was also a lot to learn within our own different local environments," said news
