The Annual Quiz Competition is getting unprecedented popularity. Although this was in a way expected, all of us in the programme have been taken by surprise by the speed at which the popularity is cruising. After the two annual events, the zones are taking up the challenge and have started organizing the competition at Zonal level. The first to take up this challenge is Maveya Zone. At the end of the first term in December 2018 the zone organized the competition for its ten schools. The schools were divided into three sectors (clusters) and each sector produced a winning school that participated in the zonal final. One of the reasons for the initiative is that the zone wants to do well in the District competition in June this year.
The Primary Education Advisor, Mrs Emily Mulowe, and the head teachers organised presents that were given to the schools that participated in the finals. FLAEM office was invited to grace the occasion as guests. The zone did everything on its own.
As an office we are over the moon with this development because it is testimony enough that our hope of making Why Wait sustainable is on track. Although it might take some years for things to develop fully, the first step is taken.
