    CHIVHU -  A new primary school named Northwood has been established in Chivhu.
    The school, which started this year with an enrolment of 160 pupils from ECD to Grade 3 is temporarily conducting lessons at Liebenberg High School.
    Chikomba District Education Officer Ngoni Mujuru confirmed the development.
    He said, "We have approved the fourth school in town to decongest other schools particularly Runyararo and Chivhu that had big enrolments."
    The school is currently operating as a satellite of Runyararo Primary, with three teachers.
    The official site of Northwood Primary School is along the road to Marondamashanu, to the East of Northwood residential suburb.
    Mujuru said the site is ideal as it will reduce the walking distance for some pupils who were going to Makumimavi Primary, about 7km from Chivhu town. He also said there are a lot of dangers when pupils cross the highway going to the schools that are in town hence the need to construct another school at that strategic site.
    Chengeto Mavhondo is the acting headmistress of the school.
    Chikomba District now has 122 primary   schools, after claiming Charter Estate that was formerly administered by Seke District although it was in Chikomba.
