Govt supports pregnant pupils

GOVERNMENT is facilitating that pupils who fell pregnant during the lockdown period be allowed to attend lessons in their clothes while child support committees have been established to mentally equip them to return to school.

The country’s Education Act allows pregnant pupils to go to school without the risk of being expelled.

Public schools reopened on Monday for the Grade Seven, Form Four and Form Six Zimbabwe School Examinations Council (Zimsec) sitting classes.

Schools had been closed since March and it is said that some of the learners fell pregnant during the period when learning institutions were closed.
