    ZAKA -St Antony High School is set to start a fish farming project at the school to compliment the pupils’ diet as well as generate income.
    This was revealed during the Speech and Prize Giving Day ceremony held at the school, where school head Joram Mawana said the fish ponds were already there.
    Mawana said the school is just putting the finishing touches to the ponds before kick-starting the project.
    “As part of our efforts to implement the dictates of the new curriculum, we will soon start fish farming here. We want to impart that knowledge to our pupils’ so that they can help themselves after they leave this place.
    “We will complement the pupils’ diet from the fish and we hope that there will be surplus which we will sell on the market to complement our sources of income,” he said.
    Zaka district school Inspector Samson Chidzurira said the fish farming project was the way to go, adding that the school had delayed in implementing the project.
    “Practical subjects like agriculture and farming in general are part of the competent based curriculum, so you had been lagging behind for some schools have already started fish farming.”
    “I’m happy that you are now doing it and this is the St Antony’s we know, you don’t lag behind but lead,” said Chidzurira.
